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.

I find quite funny that they're trying to sell an OS for "modern computers" that looks like it was designed for computers you can no longer find even in junkyards ;)

Oh, one country's junkyard is another country's treasure trove. Plus there are lots of spare parts for late 90s to mid 2000 PCs in Hong Kong and elsewhere that even with shipping fees are bargains. Yep, where I live old PC (in our very own office) still boot up.

Actually I was talking about early '90s PCs. Late '90s PCs can do better than that - think BeOS or MacOS 8, or even AmigaOS 3.

Looks like they just added some ugly icons (icons in 16 millions colors aren't necessarily better than icons in 16 colors) and some random shades.
