Shuttle XH81 Core i7 Haswell Mini PCs and eComStation?

Since it has an option to install either a DVD or Blue Ray drive, it would make installing eComStation on it easier?

It seems to be about the size of an older optical drive.

Question, can OS/2 read a DVD in a bluray drive? I'd guess yes but don't know.

The stumbling bloxk could be hat it only has display port and HDMI for video output.  The sound could also be a problem.

Blueray drives should be backwards compatible with standard DVD disks and I think CD as well (video CD comes to mind).
