Only $259 for a full copy eComStation 1.2R.

eComStation even has great support for my 16-bit Windows 3.x applications.

For additional productivity, I can buy OpenOffice 1.1.5 with premium support for only $49.

Step aside Microsoft... we have a new boy in town!

As far I know they don't. They licensed it to Serenity Systems.

you forgot to add the irony tags. You cannot be serious about this ... "only $259 for a full copy of eComStation" - I have a full copy of a Linux operating system that supports more hardware, brings along tons of good software etc. And there is OpenOffice - why should I buy it???
You really must be living in a distant galaxy if you seriously believe that this eComStation price is a good offer ...
