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.

O/S2 why?
by ~Seedy~ on Mon 29th Jul 2002 17:32 UTC

Its obvious from reading these threads that O/S2 has gained a lot of support.. but that a lot of it is from people who loved the platform in its earlier years and want to stick with it.

I'm afraid I can see few compelling reasons for choosing O/S2 over , say, x86 Linux, but many reasons not to ( limited driver and software support )

Not that it shouldn't be given a free run, preferably on an opensource licence....
