OS/2 and eComStation IBM has hammered the final nails into OS/2's coffin. It said that all sales of OS/2 will end on the 23rd of December this year, and support for the pre-emptive multitasking operating system will end on the 31st December 2006.

...finally. RIP. Don't let the tombstone hit you on the head. Die! Die! Die!

On a positive note, IBM should be commended for having such a long-term strategy for a product that was obsolete many many years ago. The level of basic support will be something that I will long remember.

As a current advocate of OSS, I don't see anything that needs to be open sourced from the old OS/2 code base.

Ah, what about the WPS? Still way ahead of any so called desktop (KDE/Gnome) from OSS.
