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.

at age 15 ('97), I had simultaneous installs of Win95 (bundled), DOS 6.22, Win 3.11, NT4.0 and OS/2 Warp 3.0 on one Olivetti machine (one of those groundbreaking "we'll include a SCART plug and this'll be the media center for the next generation" type thingies, in case anyone ever came across one of those), with multi-boot and all.
I only had a 420mb HD, so partitioning took some careful planning before installing it all. Applications, data, productivity? why? I did it because I could, and because I didn't know anyone else (at the time) who did the same. I felt like a computing god.

Anyway, I digress, the point is, many youngsters are far more apt at tech than you'd imagine. I mastered DOS at age 11 because I had to, noone was there to teach me.

I'm currently mastering Linux, and it's a whole new world to me. Gotta love it.
