  BIG BLUE 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.

  OS/2 Warp V4 and OS/2 Warp Server for e-business have been withdrawn from 
  marketing and the product CDs will not be available effective December 23, 
  2005.  End of Standard Support for both products is December 31, 2006.  
  This was announced on July 12, 2005.

I'm not sure whether to shed a tear or throw a party.
