OS/2 before being a graphical OS was a enhanced DOS-like OS.
I believe that the OS/2 embedded has nothing in common with the one with

significant active embedded development based on OS/2 today (but
everybody has the right to make bad choice, certainly for legacy

Note that DOS is still use in embedded projects.
