ArcaOS 5.0 has been released and it is available to be bought at the Arca Noae
shop page. It is based on OS/2 Warp 4.52 binaries, and contains newer drivers
for ACPI, USB, and networking, a new installer and several open source software
projects such as Firefox, Qt, Libc, and OpenOffice. The OS2World Community also
posted a statement with important OS/2 community links and some remarks on the
important role open source software has in the OS/2 community.

That's pretty cool! I've themed my installation of MATE to look kinda
like OS/2 (and by kinda I mean barely.)

Hadn't heard about ArcaOS, though I knew about eCS. Their FAQ suggests
eCS is dead upstream (which I'm unclear of at best). Loved OS/2 at the
time before I jumped to NT, and later Linux.
