OS/2 and eComStation "OS/2 has many applications that had been created by companies, individual developers and hobbyists. Many of these applications still works under the newest version of eComStation and have demonstrated a good quality. The only issue is that they are turning into abandonware since developers had switched to other platforms, but there is a chance to extend their life with the 'Open Source Long Live Elixir'. Here at OS2World.com we will like to make a call to OS/2-eCS developers and ex-developers to open source their creations. We believe that the software can be expanded for the benefit of the community and allowing a learning experience from the code of these applications."

Hi all -

There are a couple of options if anyone wants an open-source OS/2 clone.

1) http://www.osfree.org - The osFree project. This is just getting restarted after a longish "abeyance".
I think they could really use another dev or two.

2) EOS - http://meos.sourceforge.net -
This is an OSS emulator. Among their emulated operating systems *will be* OS/2. It's not there yet, but is apparently being worked on. This project is *very actively* developed and has made **massive** strides in the last month or two. Outstanding, well worth looking at.
