The only problem is that other than in usenet, details are scant and the official release was very subdued (search the page for "4.52")." This release is only available to IBM's active software subscription customers of OS/2 Warp 4 and it does seem to be a service pack ("Convenience Package" as IBM calls it). IBM does not intend to provide any additional convenience packages in the future.

Re: Open source it!

Wow, I agree. That is a great idea. With all the time and money wasted on Linux they could have just open sourced a mature operating system or parts of it. (I am not a big fan of open source or Linux.) They have nothing to lose.
