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?

It's only good enough because you have eaten enough garbage from Microsoft that you don't know what good is. Sorry, but it is true. Microsoft has held back the computer industry. We lose at least one year of progress each year due to Microsoft and Windows. The ONLY Microsoft improves their products is when they are running scared.

What a bizarre comment. I have a few questions:

- Exactly how do we lose this mystical year of progress?

- What specifically about Microsoft's software is holding us back?

- How did you measure this be 1 year? What is the basis of your calculations?

- Can you provide any objective evidence from a reliable source (i.e. Not you) to support any of the statements you have made?
