Herse some quick informations about the event, a more detailed report and pictures will be provided later.

For us (Thomas and me) the event was a total success! We have had 16 attendees, some coming even from a longer distance, like Wolfgang Draxler who travelled from Vienna! We discussed a lot of topics about OS/2 Hard- and Software, the OS/2 internet web site, the future, and one attendee even showed us possible ways to create a bootable USB Stick with OS/2!

It was really a harmonic event, with really factual discussions! We are very satiesfied with it! As Thomas and me sponsored the costs for the event this time, the attendees did donate that much money during the event that this already covers the cost for next year! So I will try tomorrow to rent the room during the same time (end of November 2014) there - I will report if this will work out - and then we will go on with the next User meeting 2014! 8) :)

hello martin,
posts outside the OS/2/eCS community with only saying the word OS/2 makes people or better say trolls go crazy. No respect of the work people actually do, their knowledge is back from the Warp3 days and they have no idea what the current state is. For sure I don't run Warp on a 486 machine and also nothing inside a VM.
