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, claims that IBM is mulling over a reintroduction of OS/2. Wait, what?

As someone else pointed out, the Amiga (which I agree was very nice) did not get anything GUIish from OS/2.

REXX came from the mainframe first. The Amiga folks liked it.

Didnt you read my post? I did not write that Amiga got GUI from OS/2 - I claim it is the other way around: OS/2 got GUI from AMIGA.

Read here to see OS/2 got GUI from Amiga, and AMIGA got REXX in exchange:
