New OS/2 rebirth?
The Reg:
A US software company has signed on with IBM to release a new native build of Big Blue's OS/2.

Arca Noae said its "Blue Lion" build of OS/2 will run on the bare metal of PCs without the need for an emulator or hypervisor.

Those still using the 28-year-old operating system and its applications typically run the stack in a virtualized environment on modern reliable hardware. The bare-metal OS will be freed from its virtual prison, and released to the world, in the third quarter of next year, we're told.
It's the un-dead! :)

"There is a cult of ignorance in the United States, and there has always been. The strain of anti-intellectualism has been a constant thread winding its way through our political and cultural life, nurtured by the false notion that democracy means that "my ignorance is just as good as your knowledge."

-- Isaac Asimov
New Didn't see your post . . .
. . because I don't often look this far down, and apparently did a "Mark All Read".

I still run OS/2 on bare metal, not in a VM, but my needs are not very modern, but this may allow me to more easily update my Mozilla.

Well as long as I don't breathe, there's always a chance that I won't need oxygen.
