-I just got this idea:
-What if IBM decided to do the same for OS'es as what M$
-has done to web-browsers?
-Just give away OS/2 Warp for free! Make it easily
-downloadable and installable from the Internet. Just
-like M$ has done with IE, and promote it *vigorously*.
-I think this would enable IBM to get a significant
-OS-share on the PCs shipped. It would lower computer
-prices, and create demand for other OS/2 software.
-In effect, this would corrupt the absolute power M$
-Anyone know how much IBM is making by selling its OS/2?
-I bet it's not very much. I think they would gain much
-more in other areas if they gave it away for free and
-promoted it. Or they could make it free only for certain
-uses, and still keep selling the server versions and such.
-Any merit in this idea?
Then IBM would be as anti-competitive as MS.
