OS/2 and eComStation "Introduced in 2007 [sic], aerolitheOS will be our successor PC operating system for OS/2 Warp and thus a new alternative for users who have intentions to change their current platform. Our operating system is a full 32-bit protected mode OS that is binary and API compatible with OS/2 Warp. The OS will be used on our Aérolithe PC systems, even if its use is not restricted to these machines. It is extreme compact and reliable and ideally suited for embedded applications. Additionally, it is designed to be highly adaptable so that it fits the requirements of desktop and network computing." Scepticism abound, though.

Remember this...?
http://rexxos.netlabs.org/

or this...?
http://www.osfree.org/index.php

How many announcements of this type are there? It's starting to remind me of what happened when BeOS shut down.

and RE: eComStation---
Serenity Systems does *not* have access to the OS/2 source code. eComStation is kind of like what BeOS MAX Edition is to BeOS R5...though that is a bit of an over simplification

Yeah. Another bootloader and "kernel" which prints "Hello World !". I hate when someone is coding OS and starts with bootloader and usually finishes at bootloader stage. Operating System is not bootloader. There's GRUB out there.

They should post news only if they have something to show - at least basic services should work. It's yet another "Let's make an OS" which dies in few months.

Someone may think that this may sound bad, or sth. Try posting such info on game developer boards ("let's make DOOM clone", "we're looking for people"), and you'll usually be doomed, when you have nothing working to show (ideas and not-working webpage don't count).
