The market they are aiming at are current users of OS2 that IBM left hanging. There are still tons of companies that use it.

These are people who don't want to deal with the complex nature of Linux (And don't want to pay for consultants) and who are tired of the MS drama (And Windows actually costs more if you factor in the price of a 3 year contract, CAL's, consultants etc)

They are trying to work within the frame work of OS2 to make sure it works like it always worked and also has newer and newer features.

Also they have to pay IBM high license fees to remarket, resell OS2. IBM never open sourced it or anything. (Why I don't know!)

I have it (Didn't pay full price for it) and I am impressed at how reliable it is. Only thing that I miss is that it is not multi user. :-(
