OS/2 and eComStation Yes, it's still being updated. OS/2 eComStation 2.1 has been released by Serenity Systems International and Mensys BV. The market for eComStation may not be particularly huge, but it still has its niches here and there. Since there might be folks here that aren't in the know: eComStation is the commercial continuation of IBM's OS/2, developed to support modern hardware.

But lets face it, that was 1994, and times have changed. OS/2 is dead. eComStation is not going to change that. It's ridiculously outdated technologically by today's standards (what kind of OS in 2011 doesn't even have reliable anti-aliasing, for example?). It's hardware support is awful and unlikely to get much better, etc.

OS/2 is dead folks. It's time to accept that and move on.


So, the life & death of an OS depends on the features of it's GUI & not the OS's actual performance???
