OS/2 and eComStation After god knows how many years, it's finally here: the final release of eComStation 2.0. We first reported on eComStation 2.0 back in December 2005, when the first beta was released, and between then and now, we've seen countless betas and release candidates come and go, but the wait is finally over.

Seriously?

This is less than worthless, and they want to charge $150 for it? Retarded.

Yes, seriously. For those not using eCS, it's almost certainly not worth it. For those who are using it though, they need ongoing development of drivers, fixes, improved functionality etc.

Remember that OS/2 and eCS are used in many corporate environments, where stability and risk-mitigation are higher priorities than aesthetics or being able to run the latest blockbuster game.


Plus, they echo typical anti-MS FUD for reasons to buy:

"As a result you don't need to purchase an expensive anti virus program. (An anti virus program is included though.)"

Yah, Security Essentials and Avira are really expensive.


A very fair point. Although, many AV programs have to be bought if used in a commercial/coprporate environment, or at least the support is paid for. I suspect that this is how they would justify the claim, but yes, it is rather disingenuous.
