OS/2 and eComStation Recently, Serenity Systems released the second first release candidate of eComStation 2.0, the successor to IBM's os/2. Mensys, the online distributor of eComStation and other os/2-related products, was so kind as to provide OSNews with a review copy of this release candidate, and since my experience with os/2 and eCS is not much more than a few failed attempts at installing Warp 4, I was eager to try it out. Read on for a short history of os/2 and eCS and a review of the release candidate.

I'm 22.5 years old, and graduated highschool at age 18 ;) . I indeed tried Warp 4 later, I don't know, say two or three years ago.

Yeah, installing vanilla Warp 4 on newer hardware can be a nightmare. Dani's IDE drivers solve a lot of basic issues, but then you probably need Snap, network drivers from some company's web site, sound drivers, etc.

FWIW, I was 29 when I tried OS/2 2.0 for the first time 15 years ago. :-)

Huh, I really thought you were some grand old man of computing but you're younger than me. My whole universe is different now.
