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.

The cost may not be high if you divide it up by the number of licenses you get, but that doesn't mean I'd be willing to pay for all of them when I only (hypothetically) need one.

In my opinion eCS is really shooting themselves in the foot by not having a cheap/free student version. They could still make money off of the legacy OS/2 people, while at the same time hopefully getting some new people interested in using and potentially developing for eCS.

I know the price issue seems to come up in the comments every time there's an eComStation post, so I apologize if I am just beating a dead horse. ;)
