OS/2 and eComStation Now this is one for the rumour pile. Yes, a rumour about a long-gone (mostly) operating system that lots of people have fond memories of. Barbara Darrow, Senior News Director at SearchDataCenter.com, claims that IBM is mulling over a reintroduction of OS/2. Wait, what?

Probably, it's because they have some big customers (IBM has a lot of big customers...) which has products that relies on some OS/2 technology.
In Italy, OS/2 was used by the national train company and the postal service, and several banks. Are they big enough?
