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 was under the impression that many banks were still running OS/2 on the desktop as well as on the ATMs. I know that my bank did last time i snuck a glance at a monitor. Mostly for interfacing with a mainframe though, but I'm guessing that there are still a lot of support and maintenance contracts, which probably makes it difficult to open the source any time soon.
