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 if we do that, then why not other things,

Such as "by law when coral snake stops doing very much stuff, he is to be put to work in the public domain for people to use him as he pleases"

or

"by law when coral snake is not doing anything with his wife, she is to be put in public domain for use by others"

Seriously, by law forcing software to be open sourced is one of the stupidest things ever and will never happen. Its not even very ethical to force such a thing.
