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.

IBM does not intend to provide any additional convenience packages in the future.

Since the possibility of using DOS, W16, W32 (using the Odin code) and as well not to forget Java applications this system will run for many years more ; ie there is lots of applications to be used within OS2 (and yes including native 32-bit OS2 code as well).

Still getting people to try out OS2 isn't that hard after all. Most people have had virus problem or have had a system that just crashed one time to many. ...
