Ibm's OS2 had Fat32 support back in the win98 days, and ran some windows programs.
Does this mean that eComstation will be up to date with ntfs and support Ntfs and windows programs/drivers as well as dirextx? Or is this something for older pc's?

Read my review of RC1 for more information on eCS's Windows capabilities.

just a quick suggestion - while providing a link for the review is really nice so that we can catch up with ecomstation's features, answering the question would have been more pertinent - just my two cents

The ecomsys devs should add win32 support (if it aint in it already) so that windows programs can run on it now having it on an NTFS harddisk being able to cope with win32 would certainly make it more updated maybe it even can replace Vista assuming the devs make directx run on it , After all its IBM/Microsofts project.
And then maybe if they lower the price below vista gamers and alike will get it with new pc's

How hard would it be to port Wine and/or share code with ReactOS?
