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 think I'm just missing the "awesome" in this thing. 149$ for "home and student"? Are they kidding? What can this 1990s time machine do for a "home and student" user, that Linux can't do for free? Or better yet, Windows 7 that costs around the same amount?


Nothing, lot of people seem to glorify OS/2 and it was rahter okey before XP came. But still it was rather easily crashing(since most programs were large and complex for business), slow fat pig on back thens machines and nowhere suited for Internet as we known it today. I personally don't understand which company would use it either since most companies that had OS/2 were huge govermental organizations with pile of money to burn(like Greeks) and now they are supported by very tiny company. Doesn't look good.
