This version has been compiled to run on IBM OS/2 and eComStation as a native application. OpenOffice.org version 1.1.5 will no longer be distributed."

To someone owning a copy of eComStation this might be a very welcome addition to an old-old version of Lotus WordPro/2 ...

But rather, I like to see it as an example of what little companies sometimes can get done on tight budgets to support a marginalized platform, like e.g. eCS / OS/2, and hell...comparing it to Apple's world in which there's no native Aqua version of OpenOffice.org, no matter what version, I think this ought to receive a small respectful nod for delivering a native eCS / OS/2 version of a much hyped Microsoft Office competitor!
