OS/2 and eComStation The proposed design for Voyager, which aims to become an OS/2 replacement, is now available. "Voyager is the codename for the idea of having a replacement OS/2 on top of modern technology. This idea is the result of around 1.5 years of thinking a lot about what we can do in the future as current OS/2 and eComStation users. Note that it's absolutely impossible to convey what we plan to do in a few sentences. I made a speech on it at Warpstock Europe 2005 that, by itself, took 1.5 hours so you get the point." Read the Voyager FAQ to understand what it actually is and aims to become.

We'll see in two or three years whether this project has produced enough code. That's all there is to say about this. BTW: It's ok to say that everything else is rubbish because it's the reason why I try to do something new. Perfectly ok ;)

I like this one best:

"Why not X?
Voyager is a desktop OS. We don't see any need for opening a window on a machine located somewhere in China when your monitor is only 50cm away from you.
And, we don't like X. Period. "

I still haven't quite understood it - hey, I have: We're going to invent everything for the 2nd time.
