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.

TD Bank (one of the major Canadian banks) still uses OS/2 in their branches. Will they go over to Linux as IBM suggests? I somehow doubt it. On the other hand, it wouldn't surprise me if they continued to squeeze OS/2 support and licenses out of IBM. Banks don't turn around on a dime because a bad decision could put a lot of their customers at risk.
