eCS pricing

Actually, I don't find the cost of eComstation to be that great, especially, if you are a previously registered user. You can upgrade fairly inexpensively, and you get the full version each time. My experience is that it works out to be a lot cheaper than MS Windows. I am not positive, but I believe that one can upgrade from OS/2 Warp which you can get fairly cheap on places like eBay.

Yes, you can. I have one Warp 4 license I've already converted, and if the GA release of eCS 2.0 is promising enough I have two or three more I'll be converting later on.

Since many mainstream Linux desktop variants are becoming such hardware pigs, I find those distros are becoming less and less interesting to me over time.

Maybe I'll start playing with the BSDs or Solaris again. :-)
