OS/2 and eComStation Last month, IBM made an announcement that put an end to any hope of an open source OS/2. Responding to requests from an online community that had previously collected 11,600 signatures in support of its cause, the company confirmed that they would not be releasing the source code of their OS/2 operating system. I used OS/2 as my main operating system for about four years, and unlike some former users, my reaction to the news sits somewhere between disinterest and relief.

...the more open source the better imho!


I understand the sentiment, but there's something a little unsettling about that comment coming from "Bit Rapist". I'm just picturing newly emancipated, naive code coming into the world and getting a crash course in the life's seedier characters. That poor, poor code never had a chance.
