Unless you've got old OS/2 applications you want to run, I don't see much point other than historical curiosity.
Honest question: how good would a build of eComStation / Blue Lion be at running DOS games in the year 2017? I assume having a sound card with some level of Sound Blaster compatibility would still be a nicety...
It would probably work fine... but wouldn't just running DOSBOX be a simpler solution? IIRC there were guides to "installing" Windows 95 inside of OS/2 as if it were a DOS application, but I don't recall how well it worked...
Oh, by far. But I knew some people once upon a time who swore by OS/2 as their solution for Windows 3.1 and DOS apps without any need for rebooting, and wondered if that was still true today.
