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."

Thanks Kroc for processing my article...it means a lot recognizing that the OSNews.com team is extraordinarily busy.

I'm just a "hack" but I love OS's and have been a long time reader of OSnews.com.

Your last look at GEOS was awesome and the Yahoo! Group GEOS-Talk (http://tech.groups.yahoo.com/group/geos-talk/messages) has tried valiantly to keep the GEOS legacy alive and were inspired by your write up a few years ago.

Again, thanks.
