Maybe we can make OS based on that kernel and loader?

I don't know.

But first: Can we create Programs for this OS? And what the Programming Languages supported?

This is a monster. A kernel that can address 256GB RAM and 24 CPU Cores--not to mention OS/2. Will this run on core i7?

It looks like OS/2 v 4, (esp the icons and the taskbar).

The boot logo looks new, and i should add it to the collection (the bitmap collection). I'm not sure about the background in the picture, as this has not been a standard OS/2 pic, but may be something different.

Of the icons on the desktop,

Newview, regedit2, volkov commander, fc/2, e (the readme file), amd pci jave all been already seen. scitech snp graphics has also been seen. dos navigator comes in dos, os2 and nt flavours, so it's interesting to see no fewer than three graphic NC clones on the desktop!

not sure of memtest or watchcat, though.

The floating toolbar at the bottom first appeared in os/2 3, while the thing at the top came originally with Lotus suite (which shows that MSFT is not the only one to lift office-suite things into the OS).

The desktop looks straight out of OS/2 4 days (not even ecom station!), but as it goes, it may well be a brand new kernel.

I downloaded it to see what it was.

It's pretty much OS/2 with a different loader (more like windows ntldr), so it loads from the cdrom without need for imaged diskettes or partitions.

Its logo has been included in the next release of my bitmap project.

Now,this is only a fully working os with updated kernel and OpenGLkernel.It have not any installer,drivers or super-duper programs.It's only for fun(but you can install it on working OS/2 system).

The bits of OS/4 i have seen seem kind of like Windows NT with a reactos loader. It's sort of like what fred vorck does when he mangles nt4 code into nt5. OS/2 was twenty years ahead of its time. In many ways, it still is.

The means for making a boot cdrom seem considerably easier than earlier versions (which involve making and joining several boot diskettes, or fiddling around with Viet's memdisk (not the syslinux one!).

This one seems to boot directly from cdrom in no-emulation mode, and then load a ramdisk, with files copied to it. Because it is in a ramdisk, you can change the cdrom to something else.

It's got a number of clones of NC, and osfree's 4os2 fork.

Where do you want to go today?

Favourite OS
All Microsoft operating systems!
The thing here though, is that eComStation is OS/2. It's the same operating system, with the same code and everything, just that it is a later version, and from reading what was written on its website, it would seem to me that it can run legacy programs, but that there are no programs currently being written for OS/2 on a widespread basis.

I downloaded the OS/4 and tryed to run Lotus 123 for OS/2 and does not run.

Problably the kernel block OS/2 application, but let me try in diferente modes.

OS/4 seems to be hiding here too: http://ru2.halfos.ru/ Core/2 is the kernel bit.
