OS/2 and eComStation Remember OS/2? Promoted as the successor to DOS in the late 1980's and early 1990's, the product wound up losing out to Windows and then slowly fading away. This article recounts what happened and summarizes OS/2 today.

You're going to tell me that a Live DEMO CD is the same thing as a fully working/installable free Linux distro? Or whatever other alternative OS you want to use that tend to be free?

In the end, you're getting a free DEMO, that's it. If you want to use it, you have to buy it and cost is still going to be a big issue.

And I'm not trendy, I've said that I would prefer to use Win NT 4.0 (1996) that is more modern (fully 32bit) than OS/2. At least you can run much more Windows apps on NT.

To each their own.
