Linux Today talks about eComStation

October 05, 2001 by Craig Miller

Linux Today talks about eComStation "...The name suggests that eComStation is designed to run Web sites or something like that, but it's actually a really good LAN operating system. It comes with Lotus SmartSuite (1.5 in the beta; 1.6 in the release version due in the next month or so), StarOffice 5.1 for OS/2, Netscape 4.61 for OS/2 (the release version will have Warpzilla, a Mozilla port apparently done by IBM; the version I downloaded yesterday works very well), and a world of network administration stuff, as well as VoiceType, the speech recognition system. Technically exciting are the addition of IBM's Journaling File System and a Logical Volume Manager. It's an interesting update, and if you have an OS/2 license it is a lot cheaper than the sum of its parts at $139 from Indelible Blue."

"But what really appealed to me is a program called "Wise Machine," published by an outfit called TouchVoice Corp. This program is not so attractive for what it does (it's beta-ness is evident) but what it suggests. It is, based on what I could figure out about it in that it is utterly undocumented best I can tell, a kind of supreme package manager. Unlike the Wise and UnWise stuff found in Windows, which appears on an application-by-application basis, this thing is installed once and handles tasks for all the apps on the machine. Use it to install your applications and it will keep track of what it has done. This makes keeping an accurate inventory easy. It also eases removal of applications. And moving an application from one place to another is a drag-and-drop operation with this application. (This is what I've gathered from playing with it a little; again, the documentation isn't there.)"

"What struck me is that this is exactly the kind of thing that Linux very much needs."
