OS/2 and eComStation For some months now, independent developers have been working on a Qt4 port for eComStation, and it's almost ready. Some Qt4 applications have been ported to eCS, as well. This project is funded by donations from the eCS-OS2 community and currently they have 82% of the needed sum.

eComStation community probobly consists of two persons.

I think it's quite a bit bigger than that. I haven't used eComStation, but in the nineties OS/2 really rocked! It's just IBM's own doing that killed it. OS/2 was a direct competitor to other IBM products - go figure. Plus IBM had no idea how to market OS/2. A big shame.

Anyway, I think it's great that you get such dedicated people that believe so strongly in a product that they will continue development on it - long past it's sell-by date. Same goes for the BeOS community.

Every single version freezes my machines. This is definitely not fun.

Maybe it's not the OS, maybe the problem sits between the keyboard and the chair. ;-)

You know what? you must be right! port scanning shows that the frozen machine is actually up. Who cares about keyboard and frozen screen. It's alive! that's a great success. Years of engineering. Thank you, eComStation!
