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.

The cool bits are managing compatibility, but still making it a clean system to develop on--that unsexy stuff that doesn't catch the eye.

As a fan of Openbox, I'll apathetically shrug regarding "modern" GUIs. Everyone is only just now catching up to the millennium (IE, BeOS), with Apple doing the best (having NeXT to work from), and Haiku being close behind. Well-thought-out integration > bolted-on features, every day of the week, twice on Sunday, and--being a Southerner--twice on Wednesday, too.

As a developer, I think I would like working with an updated OS/2 system. There are many types of legacy systems, running various different ways, that would probably be quite a drag, but I don't think OS/2 would be one of them. Especially not when it's been updated to work with newer hardware and software.
