The more who forward it to others, the greater the numbers who sign the petition and the greater the chance of IBM to open source OS/2 (or at least parts of it).

Hi, All,

Could someone write up and post in this thread a cool "marketing boilerplate" letter about the Open Source OS/2 petition to send to news sites and computer magazines that non-marketing types (like me) could use?

Thanks,
RadarCat
