    If that IDE update contains os2cdrom.dmd build 10.156 you may not want
    to apply it as all it does is destroy existing directories/files on udf
    formatted dvd when writing to the dvd.

    No, it's a punctuation error, as in:

    Look on, the le tour ed is too dumb do see the difference between an
    os and a cooperation.

    le tour ed, where is the cooperation named OS/2?

    Each of them has advantages over the other. I guess I tend to prefer

    I have been using BSD for just on 25 years, so I guess that's one thing.
    And it's generally more secure...and no plethora of distributions to
    choose from!


  9. Re: IBM Releases More OS/2 Updates...


    You're trolling ross -- and you're clearly a *complete idiot. ecs is
    commercial product. Do you know what the word "commercial" means???
    Linux is not a commercial product. It has to rely on volunteers.

    When a commercial product has no developers -- but freeware volunteers --
    to do the work, it means the product is dead. Its not earning enough
    income to pay anyone do update or maintain it as a commercial produce.
    This also means that any cash flow is being pocketed by booby st. john
    while the believers are giving their time and talent to a dead cause.

    Now grow up and stop playing asshole in the newsgroups.

    Learn to take notes hubert. You know from experience that you can not keep
    up without doing that; In this thread, its one of your ecs
    partners-in-stupidity claiming the ecs use of freeware programmers to get
    anything done, is the same as linux.

    The fact is; ecs is a completely failed commercial product that now relys
    on the gifts of freeware programmers to get anything done, while the
    con-man owner keeps any cash coming in.

    Its ain't look good out there in ecs-land. I'd shut up now if I were you,
    least you show the world just how dumb you are.

    Only complete idiots buy ecs at this point; The life-cost is more then OS2

    Captain's log. On StarDate Sat, 04 Jun 2005 02:17:59 -0400 received comm from

    They do have some technical differences (which could be deciding in some special
    cases), but generally I agree it's mainly a preference issue based on your
    personal taste and experience. I personally prefer FreeBSD because of it's
    greater UNIX heritage which I have a little bit more experience with.

    You seem to be more concerned with trying to divert attention from the
    fact that you've made a preposterous assertion and look like a prat.
    You're the one who keeps trying to make this an argument about eCS.
    I'm arguing about 'anyone or any company'.

    Really? What assertion is that? -->ecs is a commercial product. It is
    now relying on freeware authors for *critical *components. Only a
    complete ****ing moron -- that's you -->would try to claim thats normal
    and good.

    It means ecs is dead, the company behind it is *broke. Or they would hire
    staff to do the work. Now smarten up and stop the trolling.

    You're really not following this very well... perhaps you should take
    notes, as you suggested to another poster. This is the assertion I'm
