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.

So as soon as a book finishes its first print run, it should be made public domain? That's absurd.

It would be nice if IBM made OS/2 open-source or just made the binaries public domain, but neither would be good for IBM's investment in GNU/Linux.
