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.

workflow then you have to wonder what the other GUI developers have been doing for the last 10 - 15 years ;-)
S!


What kind of workflow would that be? Using OpenOffice?

Even if you only use it for surfing it's only a matter of time before you run into some plug-in issue.

Ever tried using OS/2 for anything serious? Doesn't sound like it. But as usual you will flame anything not branded Microsoft (C) ... *sigh*

What do you mean by using OS/2 for something serious? I helped implement a finite capacity scheduling system called Provisa for a reasonably large site using the OS/2 platform (2.11 through to 4.0) linked to an AS/400 based ERP system called Movex. I suppose that could be regarded as being 'serious'

Actually I ran a BBS on it for a short time when I was a kid but decided that it wasn't worth using over DESQview due to the high RAM requirement.

Any more assumptions you would like to make about me? Should I detail my experience with Linux, FreeBSD and OpenBSD as well?
