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!

I don't think it will happen. Here in Canada, a number of the banks and ATMs still use OS/2. I highly doubt that IBM would open source something so critical.

I highly doubt it would make a diference. The version in the ATMs would be striped at least, maby even modefied. You have extremly limited input/output and the version of OS/2 used is indetermend.
