With the price of eCS, I would not say it fit in the hobby OS.... I know about all the licences and stuff, still, cost too much just to toy around with it.
And who would want to live in a 16/32bit world now? OS/2 is still filled with 16bits stuff, native code (lol @ Win 3.1 !!!).
If I wanted to live in the past, I'd prefer doing it with Windows NT 4.0 instead of OS/2. It was fine when the battle was between DOS and Windows 3.x / 95.
You're going to tell me that a Live DEMO CD is the same thing as a fully working/installable free Linux distro? Or whatever other alternative OS you want to use that tend to be free?
In the end, you're getting a free DEMO, that's it. If you want to use it, you have to buy it and cost is still going to be a big issue.
And I'm not trendy, I've said that I would prefer to use Win NT 4.0 (1996) that is more modern (fully 32bit) than OS/2. At least you can run much more Windows apps on NT.
To each their own.
