OS/2 and eComStation "As a long-time fan of GeoWorks Ensemble (now Breadbox Ensemble), a DOS based graphical user interface and office suite popular in the 80s, I've run it under a variety of operating systems and emulators over the years. You see, Ensemble requires an underlying operating system to provide a DOS compatible file system, not unlike early versions of Windows that required DOS. [...] With the release of eComStation 2.0 I thought I'd revisit the challenge of getting Breadbox Ensemble running under OS/2 again [...] but to add a further twist, since I didn't want to do this on a dedicated machine, I chose to see if I could get things running under VirtualBox."

Forward note: OSnews is, and always has been a volunteer effort. Due to a clash of circumstances, none of the staff have been around to process the news. This does not mean that OSnews is dying, it means that the volunteers are otherwise engaged, and any sense of briskness for the last 12 years has been a matter of good circumstance. ;) I’m going on holiday http://camendesign.com/blog/tour_de_england shortly, Thom is away on an internship and David is largely occupied with his livelihood.
