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.

The full price is so high because of the way IBM licenses the technology to Serenity.


That, and Serenity works on the basis of small amounts of sales; I'm sure if a company approached them to purchase 10,000 licences the price will be substantially less than the ticket price listed in the article.
