Is it just me or is every OS2 based website insanely ugly?
Sites like that should come with a popup warning "The site you're about to see can damage your vision. Click OK or Cancel..." Can someone write a FF extension similar to Adblock called Uglyblock? Edited 2007-01-02 01:33

It's you. No, just kidding. I can't talk for the people who host OS/2 Websites, but I can talk for those of us who "ran" our websites on OS/2,... that's because many of us started when dial-up was 99% of our traffic. (Heck, my original host was a PS/2 486-66.) In the early 90's, if you used lots of graphics, you got lots of complaints, so page size was as small as possible. As an example, when I finally burned out, my website had over 5000 pages of HTML, including graphics, and only used 12-14MB of space. Also, many of us came from BBS backgrounds, where graphics were in ANSII.
You're quite right - screw the content.
...but what is this WorkPlace OS they are talking about, OS/2 for PPC?
And, how would they get their hands on it? Is it open source? Is it this K42 project of IBM's they mentioned?
OS/2 for PowerPC was also never released to the public.
i am afriad that K42 and OS2 will not be having any offspring ever. see IBM left OS2 for a reason. they have no intention of reinventing it diferently. it apears that K42 is to IBM what Singularity is to microsoft. ecentialy a research and development project. a "what if." Those who still use OS2 or eComStation are primarily banks and companies that use legecy software. So if K42 kernel was used it would need an OS2 copatibility layer on top of it anyways. and running an OS2 virtual machine on top of a non OS2 native kernel would be pointless.
Though I must say as an OS enthusiest I do like eComStation very much. and 2.0 looks like it will be rather nice. I am looking forward to it.
Wow. Interesting. Thanks. When in need to know, wikipedia...
