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.

Doubt very much you're misbehaving but would believe that maybe you're misinformed. As I've said before, OS/2 is renowned for its reliability once setup correctly. The problem being setting it it up with its lack of driver support. This is a major issue. Not so much with basic functions such as ACPI or SATA support but more in the graphics and network driver arena. It's a failing yes, to be sure but not one that should rule out an OS that has proven reliability and also has an UI that still has features yet to be matched by current compatative OS's. Those that have used and grown to understand OS/2 are still confused by the lack of support, the lack of continuation, and basically the lack of an OS with equivalent feature set. No more to be said really, there is (was) as OS that was available that is (was) superior in many areas to current offerings but is slowly dying due to lack of support. I for one will not stop supporting it.
S!
