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.

I do phone switches for a living and the activevoice voice mail system used OS/2 as the OS. It is bullet proof. In all my years I NEVER had to deal with the OS. It will run for years. Granted, its just the voice mail app riding on top 8/16/32 port. It just runs.

The newer system come with windows 200X. The interface sucks, its godawful slow, and is simply more difficult to work with.
I guess thats progress.

Sniff, sorry to see OS/2 go....
