OS/2 and eComStation

You have no idea how much effort went into getting this stupid white square on the screen.

If this one hell of a lede doesn't get your attention, nothing will.

There was a time for this. That time has passed.

Still cool though.

Also I wonder how much of the core API (things like WinDefWindowProc) could be mapped onto Wine?

It's always the time for an interesting article. Agree that people aren't going shout from the rooftops about how they can now run Lotus Improv, but the process of getting something old working on something new will always be relevant.

No snark intended.

Seriously? They still sell OS/2, so how is this worse than dead?

To me, this is some kind of software archaeology, preserving history.

Maybe we won't get full compatibility, but anything is better than nothing.

As a FreeDOS fan, I welcome our new 2ine overlords! ;-)
