New version of OS/2

Unread postby GL1zdA » Fri May 19, 2017 1:08 am

The title says it all: What is dead may never die: a new version of OS/2 just arrived. $99 for a Personal Edition. Can run in VirtualBox.

I'm not sure I'd actually use it, but I might just get a license because I like to encourage this type of project.

I have bought it. It's $99 for the first 90 days, then increases to full price $130 after.

It's pretty nice. Plays nice with Virtual Machines as well. It even comes with some modern applications to make it useful. New theme and screensavers. Has a package manager.

What date is that 90 days from, i.e., when does the $99 expire?
