About realase dates
It says "GA version is expected to follow later in the autumn." I recommend to add the month or quarter instead of putting a season. —Preceding unsigned comment added by Martiniturbide (talk • contribs) 22:04, 19 March 2010 (UTC)
removed "kernel = microkernel"
removed "kernel = microkernel" as it's obviously not true of an OS/2 derivitive. can't verify the rest.
Yes, no microkernel. AFAIK only OS/2s PPC port had a microkernel.
Fair use rationale for Image:EComStation.png
Image:EComStation.png is being used on this article. I notice the image page specifies that the image is being used under fair use but there is no explanation or rationale as to why its use in this Wikipedia article constitutes fair use. In addition to the boilerplate fair use template, you must also write out on the image description page a specific explanation or rationale for why using this image in each article is consistent with fair use.
Please go to the image description page and edit it to include a fair use rationale. Using one of the templates at Wikipedia:Fair use rationale guideline is an easy way to insure that your image is in compliance with Wikipedia policy, but remember that you must complete the template. Do not simply insert a blank template on an image page.
If there is other fair use media, consider checking that you have specified the fair use rationale on the other images used on this page. Note that any fair use images lacking such an explanation can be deleted one week after being tagged, as described on criteria for speedy deletion. If you have any questions please ask them at the Media copyright questions page. Thank you.
Image does not show retail product
The image shown is for the eComStation Demo CD (a free live CD based on the eComStation 1.2 codebase), not for the eComStation retail OS. There are various differences in the desktop appearance and layout. An image of the current retail OS would be more appropriate. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 188.8.131.52 (talk) 16:52, 11 November 2012 (UTC)

eComStation is shipped with both the original JFS (Closed source) and the later Bottable JFS (Open source), the installer normally installs the open source variant unless you ask it 220.127.116.11 (talk) 22:51, 23 March 2016 (UTC)
Why is there a separate "limitations" section on this operating system but not on other OS's, what exactly makes this OS a special case so that limitations need to be highlighted as a separate section? 18.104.22.168 (talk) 22:51, 23 March 2016 (UTC)
