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.

OS/2 Was The King Baby

And still the only OS I ever knew with the ability to fall off a novell network and jump right back on without a reset, just close the window and reopen it. A stable rock solid feature filled performer. I will miss it for it was truly one of the great all time OS's. If you never got to know it intimately you really missed something.

Linux could connect to Novell Netware shares and disconnect many years ago. No need for OS/2 just to do that.
