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.

Well considering most ATMS used/still use OS/2 as their OS, it's something that you might want to implement in a runtime/production environment where you don't want any downtime.

Let's say we use it as a security system, where you have to swipe a card, punch in a PIN, etc. Not likely to be invaded by a virus, since you would be running OS/2 without the windows manager.

Not sure how this will affect my workplace, but we have/had some mainframes that were running OS/2 in microcode.
