Stardock Magazine - June/July 2001 - eComStation to revive OS/2

October 05, 2001 by

Stardock Magazine - June/July 2001: 'eComStation to revive OS/2?

News from Stardock Systems in their magazine:

For most people, OS/2 is long dead. But a core group of users continue to use OS/2 and good news for remaining OS/2 users comes in the form of eComStation.

eComStation comes from Serenity Systems, founded by Bob St. John, a long time OS/2 advocate who was referred to by many Stardock people as "The invisible hand of OS/2". He was one of those people at IBM who quietly and with little credit helped OS/2 supporters, ISVs and IBM itself get their acts together. For instance, if you purchased Star Emperor, there was an AVI on it that previews Object Desktop for OS/2 and Avarice. Bob St. John, back in 1995, created that AVI. In 1995 Bob St. John quietly helped Stardock by giving us a free back cover advertisement in Personal Systems for the then brand new OS/2 Essentials. He has been one of those quiet heroes of OS/2 that most people didn't know about until recently.

At this point in OS/2' lifespan, OS/2 users wanted the best person to help OS/2, Bob St. John would be the one. The home page for eComStation is:

It's scheduled for release shortly. Putting together an updated OS/2 client is a massive undertaking, one that Serenity has been honest enough to let users be kept up to date on all the workings of getting software and updates from IBM which tends to move at a glacial pace. A quick visit to makes it apparent just how many thousands of OS/2 users are already on board to try to make a new life for the operating system that was always years ahead of its time.
