OS/2 and eComStation Now this is one for the rumour pile. Yes, a rumour about a long-gone (mostly) operating system that lots of people have fond memories of. Barbara Darrow, Senior News Director at SearchDataCenter.com, claims that IBM is mulling over a reintroduction of OS/2. Wait, what?

eCommstation with better HW support and < half the price I would consider it. If it is linux under the GUI I prefer the real thing.

Well, except that the WSEB kernel it uses was always unstable as hell, as well as the drivers. I don't particularly have fond memories of b0rked JFS filesystem. Even if they'd pay me, I wouldn't run it.

With VMWare there's absolutely no point is revving OS/2. Just run those little apps in a box.
