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.

The OS/2 subsystem was not removed from Windows until Vista. I have a couple of old OS/2 applications (including cmd.exe from OS/2 1.3) that still run on Windows XP, but not Vista.

Err: "There is no support for POSIX or OS/2 programs in Microsoft Windows XP-based or in Microsoft Windows Server 2003-based operating systems." As well as: "The OS/2 subsystem is not included with Windows XP or with Windows Server 2003."
