If you go to http://sourceforge.net and click on the site map, one can get to the OS/2 section quickly (just click on order by operating system and then chose OS/2). There are about 53 Warp centered projects but this does not limit it to 53. There are other open source projects that one could possibly port to OS/2 (ie; open source games, browsers, etc).

True, but 53 specific projects for OS2 isn't that much. But guess that SourceForge has been more adapted by the *nix community.

53 is a small number compared to the total number of projects at SourceForge. If one sees the other projects as an opportunity to use them as a part of an OS/2 software or as a port to OS/2, it is not so small.

So what should be ported then? This is the tricky question. You mentioned that it would be great if the USB support could get better, right? I would say better multimedia support in OS2 would really gain OS2 and even get new users! Better support for viewing and creating media would be great... for some such as myself. So the big question of the day would be "What would OS2 Comunity want to see improved?".

That question would make an excellent poll or survey question.

Well, we could try a poll; but I think there must be more to it before something happeneds. Well, lets see what we can figure out.

Perhaps a list of possible projects that some one would like see as an OS/2 program can be put together. With the list, one could ask which projects would be worth porting to Warp (with each having a link to the project so that those taking the poll can see what the project is about in greater detail).
