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.

Yes, there's a "Home and Student" edition, available for $149—it's this edition that I was referring to as "ridiculously overpriced" (even though it's less than the business edition). People who want a work OS will just spend the extra $50 and buy Windows 7. People who want to play with an OS will download one of the free ones.

Now I don't intend to spend for MS, but I regularly download "the free ones" and I'm using eCS rsp. OS/2 as my main system continuously for two decades now.
Somehow your statistics seem to be incomplete.
