I"m using the 10/04/17 Version and it's sometimes better than the prior version, but still not perfect and I have a bank site that won't run on it.  The 7 zip format is a pain as simple minded me can't figure out how to unzip 7Z files.  What a pain.  And Arca doesn't have it as an RPM yet over a year after initial release.  Oh well, we soldier on to keep functioning.

My Brother printer is a HL-3070CW, but newer ones have similar wired & wireless network connections and no parallel port.
Hope this helps.

You probably won't find a parallel port printer anymore, but network connected ones are ubiquitous.  I have a Brother color laser that works fine with the Brother Scrip3 (form of postscript) and standard HP drivers in Arca 5 work with most HP, and many other brands of laser printer.

AHCI 2.04 works fine here on AMD A6 7470K CPU on MSI A88XM-E45 V2 motherboard with 4 gig of RAM.  Flash disk 256 Gig formated JFS and all is well except some odd crashes with Firefox 45.

FC/2 by Brian Havard has been my go app for over 15 years and is worth the cost to register.  FM/2 is also available as a manager, but was more complicated than I needed.

Following directions for install I cannot find "hunspell" with the ANPM and the program won't start without it.  Also can't find libjpeg-turbo.   Any suggestions or is this a mistyping by the bitwise folks?

You might try SysInfo from Alexey Smirnov.  I just have the beta 0.8, but it gives me a lot of that info.

Just partition it as JFS bootable if you have eCS 2 or above.  If you only have OS/2 Warp 4 you'll have to use HPFS and 64 gig is the limit there.  HTH

For my Brother HL-3070CW I juts installed the OS/2 PSCRIPT.Apple LaserWriter 16/600 PS driver and it worked without a hitch. I used the SLPR driver for a network port and it's fine.  Just for your consideration.

PM Mail for me.  Not open source, but owned by VOICE.  Great for managing my mail.

I've got one of the 2 TB MyCloud devices and have it plugged into my router by network cable.  It works fine on windows and my eCS2.1 boxes.  I use NetDrive on OS/2 to communicate, but I think you could use Samba.  On the Win7 boxes I use which is the same name, but different software.  You can use it free for one connection.
