OS/2 and eComStation "As a long-time fan of GeoWorks Ensemble (now Breadbox Ensemble), a DOS based graphical user interface and office suite popular in the 80s, I've run it under a variety of operating systems and emulators over the years. You see, Ensemble requires an underlying operating system to provide a DOS compatible file system, not unlike early versions of Windows that required DOS. [...] With the release of eComStation 2.0 I thought I'd revisit the challenge of getting Breadbox Ensemble running under OS/2 again [...] but to add a further twist, since I didn't want to do this on a dedicated machine, I chose to see if I could get things running under VirtualBox."

You should post that in the front page, because I really thought OSnews was dying.

Perhaps someone should write an article about how to submit a story or news item.

I go to the Contacts, and follow it to a "too old" style guide, which points to an intimidating small print 12 page "new" style guide, none of which tells me definitively what e-mail address to use to coordinate a submission, or if I should use the news submission form to submit unsolicited full length articles.

How do submissions really work in practice?
