OS/2 and eComStation Serenity Systems offers a promotional price for eComStation 1.2 until the last of November. This will include a one year software subscription. The subscription implies also that you can participate in the betaprogram for version 2.0 and includes the version 2.0 GA release after betatesting is done.

Stagnant? Only in the eyes of the public. :-)

IBM has been continuously releasing new drivers (USB support, etc.) and other new features (JFS, LVM, etc.) for OS/2 even as recently as this year, as well as licensing things like Scitech's SNAP drivers so they are available for all OS/2 users.

Even new OS/2 kernels have been available informally from IBM if you know where to look for them.

Yes, eCS is a very welcome addition, and it provides a public outlet for those fixes, but OS/2 as a platform has hardly been standing still, and on a low-resource box it beats almost anything out there...
