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?

Actually, big parts of OS/2 "nice gui" came from Amiga DOS. That is the reason Amiga had Arexx, an IBM scripting language.

IBM got "AMIGA Workbench" technology, and AMIGA got Arexx scripting language. AMIGA was way advanced back then with some new cool features.
