OS/2 and eComStation OpenJDK had been released as GA for OS/2 and eComStaion. This allows eCS-OS2 users to run modern Java apps on their platform. The development is open source and had been in part sponsored by donations of the community.

Years ago, java desktop apps looked ugly and slow on a Windows desktop. Ever since, I've pretty much avoided anything I knew was written in Java.

What are things like nowadays?


Still ugly and slow. At least the apps that I tested myself, namely Vuze, Open Office and Eclipse.
