OS/2 and eComStation "Introduced in 2007 [sic], aerolitheOS will be our successor PC operating system for OS/2 Warp and thus a new alternative for users who have intentions to change their current platform. Our operating system is a full 32-bit protected mode OS that is binary and API compatible with OS/2 Warp. The OS will be used on our Aérolithe PC systems, even if its use is not restricted to these machines. It is extreme compact and reliable and ideally suited for embedded applications. Additionally, it is designed to be highly adaptable so that it fits the requirements of desktop and network computing." Scepticism abound, though.

rcsteiner is quite right- OS/2 has way more of a future than BeOS because of all the legacy systems that use it. As a result, there is a lot more commercial viability for a company introducing an OS/2 successor than a BeOS one. Lots of companies are looking around for support of their old OS/2-based products, not wanting to have to do the work to move them to XP/NT/Windows/whatever else.
