*sigh* Many posters made good points on the reason why OS/2 is still there.

OS/2 is not for home users, not for new SOHOs, not even for new enterprises. It is there to maintain the HUGE installed base that completely relies on OS/2, such as found in financial institutes, insurances, stock markets, etc.

There is a simple rule of thumb: if you don't know what it is good for, then it is not for you.

While it isn't really targetted at home users, OS/2 still has a hobbyist community. WHere do you think most of the software is coming from these days? :-)
