OS/2 and eComStation

A new demo live CD of eComStation 2.2 beta, the evolution of OS/2 Warp, is now available. The new live demo CD (beta 5) can be downloaded after a free registration from the eComStation site. There is some discussion about it on the OS2World.com forum.

Worth a try

the memory
requirements are quite steep (at least 160 MB of system memory).


I couldn't resist a laugh ;)

The only supported virtual machines for this Demo CD are Parallels Desktop and Microsoft Virtual PC.


Someone should tell them the latter isn't sold anymore.

I have old versions of both, I will give it a try. I hope it goes better than Warp 3 or 4, I was never able to use neither.

Last time I tried (few months ago), the older Microsoft Virtual PC was available for a free download from MS site...

And if you install Windows XP mode in Windows 7, you also get Virtual PC included (as that is what runs the VM).
