OS/2 and eComStation Yes, it's still being updated. OS/2 eComStation 2.1 has been released by Serenity Systems International and Mensys BV. The market for eComStation may not be particularly huge, but it still has its niches here and there. Since there might be folks here that aren't in the know: eComStation is the commercial continuation of IBM's OS/2, developed to support modern hardware.

Four Day Old News

Way to stay ontop of the news Thom. You are only four days late on reporting this. Most other IT news sites reported this back on the 20th, and that's when eComStation announced it.

What happened to the days when OSNews was actually a decent forum? Are you just getting lazy? These days we are lucky if we see even one new item a day on OSNews. And usually, the item is old news by the time you post it.

And not having fresh content up on Monday morning at the start of the work week is really inexcusable. It has to absolutely kill your page views.

Yes, I'm sure the PAID editors of those other websites also have their own, unrelated company to run on the side.

It's not that hard to find more than one item of news to post a day in the IT world. I bet you I could find 5 newsworthy posts if I spent just 30 minutes of time on it in the morning. (In fact, I know I can, because I used to be the editor on another IT news site). Really, it's not that hard. If you're not going to put in the time (and as I said, it really doesn't take that much time) to ensure that OSNews has fresh new content up every morning, then you should find someone else who will.
