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.

I did read your post. Yes, you are correct, an ATM is not a large demanding server app.

I was responding to the part where you said "OS/2 is good for small things. It is an unproven os."

Just because you use something for "small things" does not make it "unproven". You seemed to be writing off the whole OS because you can't use a single machine running it to control NORAD HQ.

I would guess that ATM's are not considered "small things" to banks.

Perhaps you can't run the bank's entire network on one OS/2 machine (and likely you could not), but then again it would probably be stupid to trust something like that to one of anything, right?
