OS/2 and eComStation IBM pretty much slammed the solid oak door on open sourcing os/2. "As stated in our response to your September 2005 letter we have considered the positioning of os/2 and open source several times in the past, and for a variety of business, technical, and legal reasons we have decided to not pursue any os/2 open source projects."

What a terrible joke! I modded it up it was so bad. Here's another...

Why should you never iron a four leaf clover?

Because you shouldn't press your luck.
