Fund of OS/2 users $support

2016-02-19 23:50:44 -- Eugene Gorbunoff [os2.guru]

The cost of OS/2 license is very high for russian/ukrainian users, as result the sellings of OS/2 software in russian speaking countries dropped down to 0 several years ago.

To reanimate the market, we create the fund which 1) will accumulate sponsor money, 2) maintain logs of users activity, 3) => compensate the cost of OS/2 licenses/subscriptions for the most active users.

Update on Warpstock Europe 2015/2016!

2016-01-06 02:49:50 -- Eugene Gorbunoff [ecomstation.ru]

* First of all the video's of the Warpstock Europe 2015 presentations are being uploaded right now to the following new Warpstock Europe YouTube channel: http://www.youtube.com/channel/UCWVjvzVtMl_BA66pWtOeEoA

The upload is still running and should finish the next 12 hours or so. Warpstock Europe should have a video stream next year again. The VOICE organization would like to thank Udo Schneider from Munich *again* for this support to provide the video stream at Warpstock Europe 2015.

* Work is still ongoing to get the new website for Warpstock Europe up. Which I hope we can do over this XMAS weekend.

* As mentioned before. Warpstock Europe will be held on the 21st and 22 second of May 2016 in Cologne at Hostel where Warpstock Europe was also held in 2016. The rooms have been reserved. Lewis Rosenthal from Arca Noae has already confirmed he will be coming because last year he did not make it to Warpstock Europe.

On behalf of all the board members of OS/2 VOICE: Have a nice XMAS and a good 2016!


Roderick Klein President OS/2 VOICE

OS/2 arrows: 5.1. Banners exchange

2015-11-15 04:06:19 -- Eugene Gorbunoff [ecomstation.ru]

5.1. Banners exchange

OS/2 websites should exchange banners, links. One site should point to other OS/2 sites. Software catalogues, News sites, companies should be included to banner networks.

Past: Experience in the past: OS/2 Ring in 90-th. The users really were walking by several sites.


  • It's so difficult to attract guests to OS/2 world. If new user comes to an OS/2 site then we should show him links to other sites. Large websites should support smaller websites and pages of standalone developers.


  • The links to other sites should be placed on some pages of the site, not all pages. Online shops, press-release pages, etc can be free of banners.
  • The owner of site should have a choice and select from several banners networks.

Efforts: eCo Ring banners network: ecoring

How to verify if OS/2 is growing?

  • If large OS/2 sites link one each other then OS/2 is moving.
  • If no banners then the owners don't work for OS/2 market.
