eComStation - a modern OS/2 Warp

eComStation is an operating system based on IBM's OS/2 Warp. They are soon about to launch the 2.0 version containing bootable JFS and SMP support. It also contains interesting open source software such as OpenOffice 2 and Firefox 2.

Overall, it is a very polished OS/2 with new features to bring it in the 21st century. They also have a server version of eComStation.

Just like OS/2, it seems to dislike VMware or VirtualBox, so it runs a bit better in Microsoft's VirtualPC (which seems to have been made for OS/2 in the first place).
