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.

Problems with Warp

I was really excited about OS/2 Warp when it first came out. Even bought myself a copy (and several big programming tomes). Ran it for a year or so, then I switched to Linux.

In any event, on every machine I ever installed it on, I found that dragging and dropping a reasonable sized directory tree (to copy it) would pile up the interface. Not very impressive. How did the QA guys manage to miss something like that?
