The OS2World Community also posted a statement with important OS/2 community links and some remarks on the important role open source software has in the OS/2 community.

I'm glad the OS/2 world finally realized that open source was the only way to keep their pet system alive in the face of corporate dickery. Unix, Windows XP, and even DOS fans beat them to the punch by decades.

Unless you're running WinOS/2 ... ;) Although that's mainly Windows 3.x.

Wasn't there a project to make Win9x apps run on OS/2? Although, that may be too old to be vulnerable.

Hrm, maybe it would be safe to run this then. :D

You can't actually buy it either. Their site keeps crashing and when I get the page to load it actually fails to continue to paypal

I know OSFree is pretty dead, but i think it still twitches a few times a year.

Maybe it could be of use to ArcaOS

OSFree has existed for years. Some people realised, but the majority sat on the arses waiting for eComStation to take over the world
