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.

$149 to be in a "select group" of eCS users? Well, I'm in way better group that don't charge that much.

That's ok.

I'm afraid, however, our semantics are different.
When you say eCS is too expensive for you, I can only accept your stance. Likewise you have to accept my stance of "the price is ok for me".

But when you say "I'm in a way better group" I see two logical flaws. First, how do you know which group is better if you can't toy around with eCS? Second, your "way better" group and the eCS users group are not disjoint sets. Many eCS users employ Linux, too. The Linux group doesn't offer any advantage over the Linux⊕eCS group.
