First off, Thanks for the support Jan. Yes, as any other OS/2 user I
too need help and assistance and have questions as well as answers for
the OS/2 community. Tholen does to and he shouldn't be discriminated
against simply because he responds to the idyits of this world.. The
attitude expressed above by Don Hills is the same attitude I ran into
years ago when seeking assistance in the eCS forums. eComStation has
suffered since then and will never be a viable product.
site is pretty comprehensive but we do need a site that tells an OS/2
user how to check their current system and the names of the latest
released updates to download and install.
OS2MT, the freely available OS2 Maintenance Tool, has quite a few of
the latest OS/2 updates and the program will download and install those
updates easily. I believe the author is working daily to add new
updates to the OS2MT program and deserves our encouragement, support
