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.
