OS/2 and eComStation After god knows how many years, it's finally here: the final release of eComStation 2.0. We first reported on eComStation 2.0 back in December 2005, when the first beta was released, and between then and now, we've seen countless betas and release candidates come and go, but the wait is finally over.

I was reading your first sentence and $49.99 popped into my head as I was reading. $150 is too much for something I probably will not use in the long term but would like to play with.

And even then you'll be in for a rough ride. It is a 90'ies operating system with driver updates to bring it into the 21st century crouching on its knees. I don't want to be a troll, but even in the 2000-2001 timeframe when I played with it, it was quite instable, ugly, and outdated. The competition for this system was Windows 95, and those days are long gone.

What makes you think so?

Of course, as you only "played with it".

W95 never was a competition for Warp. You just didn't look under the hood.
One thing is for sure: OS/2 (eCS) is not for the superficial user. Like a bike is not for the casual car owner. It needs some affection.

So? Apple expects that this year alone about 8 million people pay up to $900 for "something they probably will not use in the long term but would like to play with."

:-P
