ArcaOS, eComStation 2.0 include the runtime so it will work on any  OS/2 computer running tpday.

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.

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

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
* on the other side, it's stupid to run OS/2 on Pentium from 90-th with ISA

How to increase quality of printing from Lucide?

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

Printing of the same PDF from Windows gives pefrect results.

Maybe new pdf files don't include fonts.. you can see the contents in Windows, but get empty pages in OS/2,
we have this problems with cyrillic pdf files

Web applications / Firefox and youtube

Please confirm, does Firefox 38 support youtube?

I am using ArcaOS 5.0 and Firefox doesn't support playback of videos.

I agree that
OS/2 as Retro Gaming Machine 
could become perfect Area of OS/2 Usage. I see demand on old DOS games among simple Windows users. And they can spend some USD to such computer.

Yes, main barriers: SoundBlaster support in DOS VM, and problems of DOS VM on newer machines

Brother MFC-L8850CDW spec =>
seems that it supports PostScript and PCL.
OS/2 supports all PostScript printers.

* 80% of people select default options in the installer. So, we can make the conclusion that ArcaOS is installed with Samba client by default, without IBMPEERS.

* I understand that Samba is modern. There is only one question: can you connect to remote OS/2 disk using Samba client?
