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'm pretty sure I was able to run OS/2 apps under XP

You are mistaken, there was no support for OS/2 programs in Windows XP, and even in 2000 it was only for OS/2 1.x text mode programs. I doubt you were running any of those.

Besides, TFA is still wrong, because support was definately still there in 2000.

Correct, Windows 2000 was the last version of Windows to support the OS/2 subsystem. The author may be thinking of the HPFS file system driver which was last present in NT 4.0
