OS/2 and eComStation "Introduced in 2007 [sic], aerolitheOS will be our successor PC operating system for OS/2 Warp and thus a new alternative for users who have intentions to change their current platform. Our operating system is a full 32-bit protected mode OS that is binary and API compatible with OS/2 Warp. The OS will be used on our Aérolithe PC systems, even if its use is not restricted to these machines. It is extreme compact and reliable and ideally suited for embedded applications. Additionally, it is designed to be highly adaptable so that it fits the requirements of desktop and network computing." Scepticism abound, though.

There are additional reasons for AerolitheOS. The target is apparently embedded systems, eComStatins doesn't. The point has bin raised that eComStation doesn't have control over the source; AerolitheOS would, since it appears to be a rewrite.

In my opinion the best thing to do would be for the osFree people to take xWorkplace and start working on a Workplace Shell replacement build on FreeDOS32 and everybody else just chip in instead of working on yet another OS/2 clone.
