The people who make OS/2 are (still?) charging for it?! Who do they think they are, Microsoft?! It's not even a widely used OS anymore, the people that use it are probably die-hard fans. These days most PC OSes are free, as well as mobile OSes like Android. It's about time the days of charging for an OS universally come to an end.

Yes, it works in virtual machines, but the virtual drivers don't work in it.  So while you can load it into a VM quite easily, the VM drivers cause a BSOD.  VirtualBox is a manual installation, but i streamlined it into a batch. 

 

It's pretty much like eComStation, bit with a few extra updates.  It now supports things like PNG icons, and JPG wallpaper.

 

AcroNoae makes the tapes up on an individual basis.  That is, there is a specific tape with my name in the boot process, separate from any other user. 

 

DOS and Windows are still the same, but i have not tried Win32os2 yet.  All the old icon themes are still there, so if you are used to the Warp3 set, you can use them,  But they have some nice DOS and OS/2 icons there as well.
