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.

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

It's not a good match. How would you map the WPS to KDE or Gnome let alone use it under X? It would be a better use of time to put WPS-style integration into either X or a window manager along with open desktop extentions that KDE/Gnome/... share.

Keep in mind that I've seen nothing that matches what OS/2's WPS tried to do. (Tried, because it was unstable at times and had a bad design that caused focus problems.)
