OS/2 and eComStation Recently, Serenity Systems released the second first release candidate of eComStation 2.0, the successor to IBM's os/2. Mensys, the online distributor of eComStation and other os/2-related products, was so kind as to provide OSNews with a review copy of this release candidate, and since my experience with os/2 and eCS is not much more than a few failed attempts at installing Warp 4, I was eager to try it out. Read on for a short history of os/2 and eCS and a review of the release candidate.

I agree that the desktop aesthetics leave something to be desired, but I'm curious what you eventually end up learning about the WPS, and what you think of various things like crosshatched icons (for processes which are running), the difference between program objects and shadows in the WPS, etc.

Some of the following docs are quite dated but might still give you some additional hints and configuration tips:

Good luck!
