OS/2 and eComStation We're already nine days into the year 2010, and yet, eComStation 2.0 has not yet been released. The final release should've been released before the end of 2009, but December 31 came, and no release. Luckily, the eComStation team has released a statement, saying that the final release is definitely around the corner.

I suppose FreeDOS is a better option in this case. At least, when your DOS software requires direct hardware access, it's not advisable to run it within a multitasking enviorement.

The Windows enviorement within OS/2 requires, starting from OS/2 Warp 3.0 a copy of Microsoft Windows 3.x.
OS/2 will integrate this windows copy into itself.
(OS/2 2.x had windows support out of the box)

As OS/2 Warp 3+ (and so, eCS since it's based upon OS/2 4.51) requires a copy of windows 3.x, it would be more logical to run that on top of a (MS)-DOS.
