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.

OS/2 Warp 3 was available in four flavors back in the day:

OS/2 Warp 3 - red spined box - required Windows 3.1 if you wanted to run Windows. It would integrate with an existing installation, or you could install Windows later on, even on an HPFS partition.

OS/2 Warp 3 "Fullpack" - blue spined box - came with its own copy of Windows 3.x called WinOS2.

OS/2 Warp 3 Connect - red and blue versions as above plus peer to peer networking, TCP/IP, etc.

The first two just had SLIP and PPP dial-up networking, which wasn't a big deal because very few home users had access to anything requiring ethernet (or other) drivers and hardware.

OS/2 Warp 4 removed all of those variations, and was only available as a fullpack client with full networking support.

In other words, you might've been correct depending on which version of Warp 3 you were talking about. :-)

I bought OS/2 Warp 3.0 years ago, at a used-stuff-marked. Indeed, it was a red spine box.
