OS/2 and eComStation Now this is one for the rumour pile. Yes, a rumour about a long-gone (mostly) operating system that lots of people have fond memories of. Barbara Darrow, Senior News Director at, claims that IBM is mulling over a reintroduction of OS/2. Wait, what?

RE[3]: I got

Member since:

2.1 on a 386SX-25, later Warp. Then Linux came along, which was far more fun to tinker with, and a steal compared with the price of Merlin. It was very good for the time (Warp and Merlin easily beated 95 hands down). But it never really took off, now it is an old and stale system (even eComStation) that is not pretty API-wise compared to old competitors (BeOS) and new ones (Qt). And if you thought Ubuntu 10.04 is ugly (actually, I think it is pretty ok), wait until you see eComStation.
