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.

RE[2]: Java apps?

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

OpenOffice is not written in Java. It's written in C++. It has Java dependencies only for scripting purposes.

And as far as Eclipse... You started up Visual Studio .NET lately? All IDEs are slow.

Blaming Java for this is just ignorance, or anti-Java sentiment on your part.
