Should IBM’s OS/2 Be Open-Sourced?

The Open Source Petition letter to IBM

A good article Esther Schindler at CIO: Should IBM’s OS/2 Be Open-Sourced?

Comment by me:

Sadly, I agree

I would like nothing more than to think that this time the petition might work or, at the very least, IBM would step up and publicly say no. My money is on no reply at all. Why revisit something that represents a period when IBM was slowly falling apart and being displaced my Microsoft? Why step up and say no in front of the open source crowd, showing their true colors?

I did sign the petition, again. It is just a shame that the source that took so much time and effort to produce will just cease to exist. What a waste.
