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.

RE[2]: OS/2, AmigaOS and others

Member since:

Actually it might be simpler to implement the OS/2 subsystem in ReactOS than redo it from scratch... (just like DOS, win16 and win32, and POSIX, OS/2 API should be enclosed in a single subsystem).
(actually IIRC it's called Presentation Manager)
