OS/2 and eComStation Yes, it's still being updated. OS/2 eComStation 2.1 has been released by Serenity Systems International and Mensys BV. The market for eComStation may not be particularly huge, but it still has its niches here and there. Since there might be folks here that aren't in the know: eComStation is the commercial continuation of IBM's OS/2, developed to support modern hardware.

Of course there are other options. I'm just pointing out that the other options don't have nearly as good support for hardware and software than Windows, so by your argument, why would be bother with anything else? Why go with the hassle of limited supported hardware on a Mac? Why bother with rough Flash implementations and *almost* compatible office suites on Linux? Why jump through hoops recompiling kernels and putting wrappers around Windows drivers just to try and get your built-in wireless NIC to work? Obviously someone, somewhere wants OS/2, otherwise it would've died off a long time ago. Just because it's not for you doesn't mean it's dead.
