ES/2 is destined...
« on: November 24, 2017, 05:02:09 am »
Quote from: Bill Gates
OS/2 Programmers Guide, November 1987 -- I believe OS/2 is destined to be the most important operating system, and possibly program, of all time.

Bill was right.  ES/2 will bring OS/2 to modern technology, and restore to consumers that which they lost when Microsoft went the way of Windows, and later the way of monitoring and tracking every move you make in Windows 10.

ES/2 will literally change the world.

ES/2's goal:  for target implementation, feature support, programming model, compatibility, extensibility, and general user experience and feel.

The slogan will be:

      "ES/2:  A better OS/2 than OS/2"

--
In keeping with:
       "OS/2:  A better DOS than DOS"
And:
       "OS/2:  A better Windows than Windows."

If you get within the next 10 years anywhere near to what OS/2 does today I'll have a look at it. But as of today (and I'm pretty sure the next 5 years) it's not more than a very simple and very basic DOS clone at best. Someone would call it vaporware but....
