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 tellers at my previous job were DOS programs. We ran them on Windows 98, but I would've preferred running them on eCS.


If only they still ran on modern Windows. XP was the last to be fairly useful.


DOS is also still big in the embedded world due to its simplicity. eCS allows you to run endless DOS instances side-by-side


You can still do that with virtualization, it's just fairly hard to share files and (in some rare cases) potentially slow and buggy.
