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.

My family always used os/2 since version 2.1. I have done a number of installs in the past (starting at about age 14). The basic installation is moronically easy..but the advanced can be more um...interesting...especially nowadays where you have to go find drivers for hardware that did not exist when the software was written and make loads of driver floppies for use at install time.My first install of freebsd reminded me of os/2, in the sense that I could tell the system was performed reat, but if I didn't actually know what I was doing I was never even going to get it to install. The os/2 system tools are still some of the best however(except for networking...even on warp 4 it was pretty evil),
