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.

This high price is for those companies that have a OS/2 solution, and must upgrade. They are the only one that are willing to pay. OS/2 will never get any new users, and they know it. They are not after new users. It is better to milk the old cow as much as possible. It they really wanted to increase the user base, they would have a much reasonable and lower price. But they know they can not compete with the open sourced OSes.

32bit kernel? That is not... a good choice for an OS, too limited. Even today, people can not use 32bit Windows to its full extent, more and more need the power and memory freedom from 64bit. If you really need stability and performance and no practical limitations, choose a real Unix, not Linux.

BTW, it is funny that OS/2 has GUI tech from Amiga, whereas Amiga got REXX scripting language in return, as Arexx.
