eComStation product plan calls for sales of eComStation through mid-2007. Even then, there are no plans to terminate the product. That is simply the time frame of the current product plan.
On July 12, IBM announced withdrawal of active marketing and end of support for OS/2, see http://www-306.ibm.com/software/os/warp/announcements.html
IBM had previously indicated end of service for OS/2 Warp 4 is December 31, 2006, and the withdrawal from active marketing as of December 23, 2005, indicating IBM will not sell OS/2 Warp 4 after this year.
This announcement covers the IBM plans for the IBM distribution of the OS/2 products. The announcement does not impact OEMs who may use OS/2 and other IBM products as part of their product solution.
