OS/2 and eComStation Last month, IBM made an announcement that put an end to any hope of an open source OS/2. Responding to requests from an online community that had previously collected 11,600 signatures in support of its cause, the company confirmed that they would not be releasing the source code of their OS/2 operating system. I used OS/2 as my main operating system for about four years, and unlike some former users, my reaction to the news sits somewhere between disinterest and relief.

Okay, I just seems like ten years to me ;)

Hopefully, I will not have a lot of problems transferring my BeOS programming skills to Haiku.

PS. Yes, I know anyone looking at my code on BeBits is saying "What programming skills?".
