OS/2 and eComStation Now this is one for the rumour pile. Yes, a rumour about a long-gone (mostly) operating system that lots of people have fond memories of. Barbara Darrow, Senior News Director at SearchDataCenter.com, claims that IBM is mulling over a reintroduction of OS/2. Wait, what?

...With a company as large as IBM backing a linux-OS/2 hybrid it could be an interesting product. Didn't linux adopt some of the kernel design of OS/2 as well? Or am I way wrong about that? Anyway, it would seem like it could be a good fit and IBM does *seem* to support the open source community to some extent...
