The lingering death of OS/2 has come to an end. 9 years after the last major version of OS/2, IBM has officially announced what most observers (outside Usenet's comp.os.os2.advocacy) have known for years, OS/2 is dead. IBM is directing existing customers to the Linux OS. IBM will cease selling OS/2 in any form by the end of this year and all technical support will cease as well (except for specific, individual support agreements).

"We're making official what has been going on for quite some time," said Steve Eisenstadt, an IBM spokesman. "We haven't released a new version of OS/2 in nine years."

According to Eisenstadt, OS/2 has fewer than 80 customers that hold more than 10 licenses.

My father for one - still used in old telecommunications switches from the early 90's. If it still works like a champ, why spend lots of money replacing it?
