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.

Just a thought, but perhaps those interested in OS/2 could hold out a couple more years for ReactOS. Sure, it's a Windows NT clone, but there are plans to implement an OS/2 subsystem. Sure, it's far from ideal, but what in this world truely is?

They've made some nice progress of late, and I would be seriously stunned and suprised if it weren't usable for many things in the next year or two. Not a long time to wait, IMO.

Lack of beer makes me think silly things like this :-P
