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.

Just to close thread...

Good points.

So that's I think, why so many of still-users still see some point and future in it.

At the end of the day, you won't be able to buy OS/2 in 2006 from IBM and IBM isn't (???) allowing anyone to copy it...except for one company that has a commercial and closed source product based on OS/2.

The core of the product is not capable of adapting in the long term...no source!
