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.

There is very little difference between Yellowtab Zeta and eComStation. OS/2 is a dead system, for best results use Linux. With the release of the GPL 3 it just makes Linux more attractive. Why would anyone want to use a dead OS like OS/2 when Linux is available. Its proprietary anyhow and proprietary software is inches away from being extinquished. This is similar to anyone who advocates for Netscape when Firefox is available. netscape like OS/2 is dead and needs to remain buried.
