OS/2 and eComStation IBM has hammered the final nails into OS/2's coffin. It said that all sales of OS/2 will end on the 23rd of December this year, and support for the pre-emptive multitasking operating system will end on the 31st December 2006.

i had a horrendous experience w/ warp3 back in the summer of 95. i wanted something non-ms (was already using pc-dos 7), and i thought os/2 would fit the bill. the problems i encountered scarred me to this day.

now that i'm on linux, i've no reason to even give os/2 a second glance, whether it's open sourced or not.
