OS/2 and eComStation Although it has not been formally announced, the eComStation 2.2 beta live CD has been released. This is not a complete version - eComStation isn't free - but it does give you an impression of what this continuation of OS/2 looks like and how it works. Registration is required.

OSFree?

Just a thought - does anyone know what happened to OSFree?

Its sourceforge page seems to be up still: http://sourceforge.net/projects/osfree/?source=navbar

but the original dedicated site appears to have become defunct around 2010(?):
http://www.osfree.org/

and there's this rather incompletely written set of information on it:
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/User:Reiknir/OsFree

Given the high cost of eComStation it might even be a better (or more ethical?) bet to divert money to this effort - were it to prove still to be alive.

However, since MrMysteryGuest has indicated that there may be ways to obtain the OS/2 experience other than via eComStation, perhaps that hope is rather a vain one.
