i think I am correct in thinking that mircosoft own some of the code in OS2, therefore it is not IBMs to give away.

I am willing to be proved wrong.

Nor IBM or MS owns the actual os/2 code, now the code is owned by the autors of eComStation (serenity systems -> www.ecomstation.org). they buy os/2 code some time ago to IBM and continue the development where IBM left it. They have just released the eComStation 1.2.
Anyway, i've just singed :wink:

I voted, OS/2 has always sounded cool but I have never used it (I don't think I even have seen any screen shots).

If we can steal some of the OS/2 fan base that would be cool for ROS :lol:

Here is a similar petition at OS/2 World.
http://www.os2world.com
http://www.os2world.com/petition
Here is the direct link to the petition.

We are hopeing that even parts of OS/2 source code could be open sourced even if IBM can not open all of it. :idea:

The latest version of OS/2 is eComStation.
http://www.ecomstation.com
It is a much improved version over OS/2. 8)

What does os2 could do that windows couldn't? OS2 seems to be a obsolete OS prior to win95, isn't it?

Well, os/2 was most avanced than windows, warp 4 has a speech recognition system that work at 1995, the shell was the first (and the only one atm) true object oriented (everything is a true object, not like in windows nor linux), api was stable like a rock (almost every bank and critical system was running os/2 here untill some years ago), was faster than windows, the network stack was wonderfull when it was launched...
The architecture was similar to nt in some ways (well is more exact to say that nt was similar to os/2), but they selected diferent ways to evolve.
Also Os/2 was a true multitask os, with a good i/o scheduler.
But that was some years ago, now some parts are obsolete, but some other continue working wonderfull (take a look to ecomstation).
You can digg more about os/2 at os2 world and some other pages.
