OS/2 and eComStation Many OS/2-eCS users knows that we are currently requesting signatures to ask IBM to open source OS/2 (or at least the OS/2 components that are possible to be opened). We are getting close to send the petition, so if you haven't sign yet, go ahead!

Of course it would cost money. But thing is, IBM as already spent quite an amount of money on open source, maybe they'll find this also worth spending. I never really used OS/2, still I signed the petition because I find it [i.e. opening parts or the whole OS/2] would be quite good. IMHO the problem doing it lies not in having too much MS code in it, but that it [OS/2] is still being used in quite a lot of places around the globe [think ATM].
