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?

Uh... I would think that's one of the primary reasons for basing OS/2 on the Linux kernel in the first place: in Linux, the hardware support is already there. Not to mention it's constantly developed by people other than IBM (though not excluding them of course) so less work and maintenance on IBM's part when it comes to the kernel; just some patches to make it "fit" OS/2.
