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.

Seriously, by law forcing software to be open sourced is one of the stupidest things ever

As opposed to use of the non-word "stupidest," which is one of the most stupid things ever.

Stupidest IS a word. People use it, everyone knows what it means, it's in most dictionaries now. Maybe you are one of those grammar nazis that think languages do not change over time, but then you would be wrong. Anyway that has nothing to do with OS/2 so just shut your yap and quit trolling.

Back on topic, I've used OS/2 since Warp 3 and I've always preferred it to Windows (at least up until 98) and I still use it on my older computer. I think it would be great if IBM made it open source, but this is IBM after all and I doubt that will ever happen. ;)
