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.

FreeDOS maybe? it's free and open.

Oh hell no. I don't mean to be too dismissive, but on to work with CNC machinery? That's not smart. If the whole thing kills itself (which will cost $200,000 to fix), do you really want management to find out that you went with a free solution instead of something guaranteed to work just to save $200?

I'm all about free and open code, as long as the potential damages from non compatibility are less than $200 K. Anything new => Open source. Anything legacy => USE LEGACY SYSTEMS FOR COMPATIBILITY.
