I'm currently using eCS 1.0, looking forward to upgrading when 2.0 goes gold. Serenity has added things to eCS that OS/2 has very conspicuously lacked for years, like ACPI support, multiple user desktops, and support for modern hardware. Plus, with the recent announcement that Java and Flash are to be open-sourced (and thereby soon ported to OS/2), combined with Odin (Win32 app support), Everblue (Linux app support), and projects like Win32-Prn (support for Windows printer drivers in OS/2), eCS will continue to remain modern and relevant for at least the next couple of years.

I just wish IBM would release the source code for the Workplace Shell, so someone could finally fix the message queue once and for all, and maybe even port the WPS to Linux.
