The Warpstock annual conference was held on Oct 24 to 26 on St. Louis, Missouri. These conferences are related to the OS/2 and eComStation platform. Currently there are two reviews of the event online at OS2World and at WarpCity2 blog. Between the relevant news there is a new company called “Arca Noae” that will focus on software development for the platform. They are working on ACPI, USB, Network and other drivers for the platform. Additionally Mensys also gave some light why there haven’t been activity on the last year. Arca Noae announced driver releases and software subscription products for the users of this platform.

It’s good to see additional players investing in the future of ecs by improving components (e.g. the USB stack) and Firefox/Mozilla for web browsing.
Hopefully others will join them.
As a fan of OS/2 Warp, I have always hoped the price of eComStation could someday approach reason. Who want to drop a couple hundred buck to play with an OS? Heck, I can get Windows 7 Professional for under a hundred. It just never made sense. Perhaps it has something to with royalties. Oh well, I’ll keep hoping.
