+1 Gumbi, I was a young (Unix) system & network admin back in 2000, and as I distinctively recall, the original response to Sun's Java was a product called blackbird.   Blackbird failed miserably and faded away into the mist. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Microsoft_Blackbird Although to go and read the wikipedia page on blackbird, I would not come away with that opinion.
+1 Post like his are prime validation for "thumbs down", along with "thumbs up".
 You are an example of your own post. Unless you are talking about the open source port of OS/2, the operating system in question was replaced years ago by EComStation. http://www.ecomstation.com/
 Thanks for this post.  I'm sure that there are people happy with the GUI modifications.   And there is no doubt that developers took note of all the new API's.   But as a sysadmin, I really would have like to have heard if they did anything to the actual operating system itself. And good call on the new file system.   I would like to see Apple pick up where they left off with 10.5 and complete the ZFS integration.   I do realize that ZFS is available to OS X via both...
