OS/2 and eComStation "OS/2 has many applications that had been created by companies, individual developers and hobbyists. Many of these applications still works under the newest version of eComStation and have demonstrated a good quality. The only issue is that they are turning into abandonware since developers had switched to other platforms, but there is a chance to extend their life with the 'Open Source Long Live Elixir'. Here at OS2World.com we will like to make a call to OS/2-eCS developers and ex-developers to open source their creations. We believe that the software can be expanded for the benefit of the community and allowing a learning experience from the code of these applications."

>> I don't think this article talks about open sourcing OS/2 or eCom Station but the programs thatr were written for these operating systems. Many developers have abandoned OS/2, because it doesn't play any important role anymore. <<

You're one hundred percent right.
How about we start to actually read articles before reacting to them? The article isn't about opensourcing OS/2 at all, it's the applications written for it.
