The resurrection and the light

Author: JT Smith

That's LinuxPlanet's incorrect Bible quote, not ours. "It's entirely unplanned but a kind of neat coincidence that it's Easter week and here I am talking about an operating system back from the dead and
what Linux can learn from it.

The operating system is IBM's perennially crippled OS/2. It's back in the form of a very good system with a very bad name: eCommerceStation. I
have a beta here, and it works very well. It's an updated OS/2 Warp4 with lots of good applications, some very interesting network-centric stuff,
and the letters "eCS" everyplace older versions had "OS/2." It's published not by IBM but by a company called Serenity Systems."
