Applications / [FUTURE] Device Manager
« on: January 26, 2020, 02:20:48 pm »
Future versions of DevMan will show,  did you installed proper drivers for every device or not. (in other words, is it possible accelerate work of video or it works at maximal speed = is it necessary replace universal device driver to accelerated or not)

Our experience with service of Windows users shows that  huge amount of Windows computers are configured not properly:  main drivers are not installed so computers work not properly.  Of course, Windows has all means to fix this problems. OS/2 will get the assistant in 2020 only.

DevMan Homepage:

screenshot example:
* red vertical stripe -  the device doesn't have driver or wrong driver
* orange indicator - a driver is installed but it should be  replaced to accelerated one,
* green stripe - optimal driver is installed

Hardware / OS/2 compatible hardware

OS/2 GURU published more reports about tested hardware: modern motherboards, USB Audio adapters
Database of hardware:

What computer configuration is optimal for OS/2 in 2020?
* you don't need extreme NVidia video adapter
* no need in i9 and 64 Gb of RAM

How to increase quality of printing from Lucide?

seems that Lucide prints with 150 dpi. or 75. Small letters have poor quality.

Web applications / Firefox and youtube
« on: April 10, 2019, 10:31:38 pm »

Networking / ArcaOS network compatibility with OS/2
« on: March 08, 2018, 02:00:55 pm »

It's not clear, does ArcaOS work with other OS/2 computers in local network?

IBMPEERS is absent in ArcaOS. Samba client is installed instead.

We can't find information how ArcaOS computer can access disks of other OS/2 computer?
(other OS/2 computer: eComStation 2.2 with IBMPEERS)

How to install IBMPEERS?

General Discussion / Building OS/2 roadmap: IF .. THEN .. ELSE ..
« on: May 05, 2016, 02:11:42 am »

It's 2016 year but nobody knows what way to select for OS/2.

First of all, eComStation development was going with
participation / support of professional people.
On the other side we understand that we were missing more recommendations
(More consultants, more analysis)
As result, eComStation project made several mistakes

Every OS/2 user (ex-user) is professional in own own area (profession)
and can give recommendations based on own experience.

Let's collect thesis IF .. THEN ..  --
to understand which choice is wrong, and which changes will help to achieve success.
