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.

Anyone still using legacy OS/2 apps are insane in a business environment. I can't beleive it. At worst let it run and have a fallback system to replace it. It can't cost that much to replace it. How much will it cost in downtime/lost productivity etc. Insane. And to think a business would invest in such a gamble? Madness. Go with the flow or get bitten in business. Enthusiasts on the other hand feel free to do what you wish with your time - I don't judge them.

If you have a working application, working hardware, and a good source of fixes/replacements for both, why does it matter which platforms are being used?

Businesses should strive for productivity and utility, not wasting time keeping up with the latest trends...
