It is a handheld computer that can run desktop operating systems. It is really neat looking. Can it run OS/2 or eCS?

Well, at least after reading at their home page it sounds like that you should be able to, qoute It runs any enterprise standard operating system (OS) - Windows, Linux or UNIX.... So if you are able to install Linux OS2 should be installable as well. But, then again, <grin> I would call the company and ask them since buying when and figure out that it won't do wouldn't be the best way of figure it out.

They do have an e-mail address at their site that I will inquire about being able to load any operating system (they should be able to load any os they chose unless a certain os company prevents them from doing so).

"Does eComStation have a nonproprietary driver strategy? Drivers are the
main issue with operating systems other than Windows and Linux that are
targeted to x86 platforms, as there are mind-numbingly many devices that
may be encountered, each with its special needs.

That said, any PC operating system should work on the Tiqit when using
"generic PC" video and audio drivers.

In order to utilize the full acceleration capabilities of National
Semiconductor's SC2200's built-in graphics hardware, a driver tailored to
this chip will be needed. Drivers based on the Cyrix MediaGX coprocessor
stand the best chance here.

The above is a reply from the people who make the TIQIT handheld computer. It is neat that they say it is possible. With the first part being a question, I directed them to the eComStation site.

Since the advent of SDD/2 (and the more recent SNAP) from Scitech Software and the universal audio driver, it will probably have a greater chance of working with eCS(?)
