I had a reader send me an interesting comment that I was hoping to get some feedback on from all of you. The reader wanted to know why IBM doesn't open source it's OV/400 product, since it's not making money on it anymore anyway. I looked into it, and it appears the product is too tightly integrated with the operating system. However, my question is this -- are there other products/applications that are no longer supported, and therefore no longer producing profit, that could feasibly be open sourced for the benefit of the open source community and/or users of that particular app? It seemed an interesting concept, and I was trying to think of other "discontinued" offerings that could fall into that rationale. (OS/2....others??) Thanks for any help/comments you can offer. **************************** Jill R. Aitoro Industry Reporter iSeries NEWS (423) 884-3531 firstname.lastname@example.org
