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.

Has the ATM EVER given you the wrong amount of money?

No.

Seems UI takes a back seat to reliable cash dispensing and a solid backend.

OS/2 is one of the most stable OS ever, and I mourn its death. Banks are right to stick with it, its well characterized and works.

Sorry you want a fancy UI, but the only thing that sucks about new ATMs is those foolish talking advertisements while you wait for the cash. Complexity sucks.

Want them to put LCDs in your seat in an airplane or keep the thing from crashing.
