OS/2 and eComStation Serenity Systems International and Mensys BV have announced the immediate availability of eComStation 2.0 Silver Release for download on August 28th, 2009. This beta release RC7, codenamed "Silver Release", is available to Software Subscription subscribers. This release of eComStation 2.0 has been under development for a long time. This is demonstrated in the amount of issues resolved and the amount of code committed. For example, 259 bugs were resolved, of which 174 were "fixed" since the previous beta release (eCS 2.0 RC6a). Over 1450 commits were made since the release of eComStation v2.0 RC6a (beta).

I used to use OS/2 a few years ago, shortly before IBM killed it. At the time it was still kind of cool, especially for something that ran on a PentiumMMX at 166MHz, but I tried eCS RC5 a couple months ago and it really shows its age. Hardware compatibility is awful, things like changing the screen resolution require a reboot, and the UI is ancient and barely usable. I wish they would just release the OS/2 code; the open source folks could probably do something with it.
