OS/2 and eComStation We're already nine days into the year 2010, and yet, eComStation 2.0 has not yet been released. The final release should've been released before the end of 2009, but December 31 came, and no release. Luckily, the eComStation team has released a statement, saying that the final release is definitely around the corner.

Can someone tell me how advanced and powerful eCS 2.0 will be? Foe example, is it as powerful as Windows 2000, XP or Vista and everything the mentioned OSes can do, eCS will also be able to do as long as someone writes the software?

I really do want to know.

ECS is basically OS/2 so go figure... it is more or less along the lines of Win2k and OS/2 always has been.

In other words OS/2 with updated drivers and support for latest hardware. I wonder if eCS has access to the source. I tried eCS on VPC and I liked it. Looking forward to the new demo CD.

That's not all. The (from my POV) most important feature of OS/2 are its unsurpassed integrative possibilities. As Thom mentions in another comment OS/2 runs DOS better than DOS and Win 3.1 better than Win 3.1. (This meant for me I could run dozens of DOS boxes concurrently on one machine while developing programs on my job.) It is very friendly to linux software, too. We now use samba und CUPS, we've adapted qt4. Our assembler-coded pmview is the fastest picture viewer/editor on earth. We've got the big standards like AMP, the fx/tb suite and OpenOffice.
And we enjoy something that according to the gurus of the rest of the world must not be enjoyed ever: A malware free OS. 18 years of the delicious forbidden fruit without regret. ;)
