like why bother? OS2 is dead, hardly anyone uses it so why bother blowing your dough on eComm junk, it never works v. well... right? In case you have not heard CHROME will blow MS away so all you fake OS2 users that pretend your ISP lets you log on when you really use TwindoZe can just, that's right, keep blowing smoke! ???
someday os2 will be ruled by the young and famous-at least in the open-source world!

HAH! ChromeOS is a sad, sad joke. Android has more power/market.

Not sure what the negativity is about... but in our office, only one machine is Windows... the rest are OS/2 or eComStation, and all log in to our ISP without problems. When we have ISP issues (connection down, etc) and call for support, the techs seem actually happy we are running OS/2, as we can help the diagnose the issues without having to go through the list of Windows-only issues (mangled TCP implementation (by a virus, malware, whatever), hosed forced update that damaged something, or whatever). Instead, they are quite thrilled that I can just jump on, do traceroutes, flush the routing tables, or do whatever without me needing to "scan for this" or "check for this" or "does another Windows machine do it to - or is it possible that one is infected and thus does not have access to the Internet"

YMMV, but my ISP has never had a problem with us running OS/2.

On top of that, most ISPs wouldnt really know or care - since most people connect via a NAT device (ie: wireless router connected to a cable/dsl modem) - which OS/2 works fine with.

Anyway, one can see that, for quite some time, our ISP hasnt cared in the least (and we've had absolutely no issues connecting) that we run OS/2:

It's been a long time since Netcraft have accurately reported my websites as OS/2, I asked them
about it years ago but nothings happened, I can only assume there checking gets confused by
Injoy firewall.

This is what the server really is :-

The only Windows here is on a VPC to help my family over the phone, everything else is OSX (wife) or AIX.

Cheers

PS, comkal.net is the actual server and the report on that you can see were it use to report OS/2 as
part of the Apache bit, but even back then it reported an unknown OS, so I think it must have been around
2000-2001 that it reported the OS as OS/2.
