We don't need HPFS(386) support either. JFS should be good enough for OS/2 (not to mention it's also partly Microsoft's property).

I'd rather have the Mach-based WorkplaceOS (OS/2 PowerPC) be open-sourced. Unfortunately it wasn't *really* finished and it only suppported a select few systems. Would WorklpaceOS in its current state be more 'complete' than OS/2 Intel minus Microsoft's property?

Alas the reality is that it's questionable whether it has a better chance of being released than OS/2 Intel, if at all.
