OS/2 and eComStation OSNews reader Prognathous writes: "Well, actually it was released earlier this year, but I couldn't find any references in your news section, so it's about time. The only problem is that other than in usenet, details are scant and the official release was very subdued (search the page for "4.52")." This release is only available to IBM's active software subscription customers of OS/2 Warp 4 and it does seem to be a service pack ("Convenience Package" as IBM calls it). IBM does not intend to provide any additional convenience packages in the future.

What about the plain old CP's?

OK, so EComStation will see, in the views of some, the continued survival of OS/2. What about IBM's upgrade technique of service levels? Does it really have use, will it keep with current technologies, or is it really just the end of the road? Even now you can't force OS/2 Warp4 CP2 onto a 20 Gb Hdd for lack of specialist support. That's gonna turn out a major barrier for the casual upgrader. Will it die? Will EComStation make the final one-and-only representation for this world-class OS? Thoughts?
