Obtaining Help with OS/2
OS/2 is an incredibly flexible and forgiving operating system. It is very stable and allows you to run a much heavier workload than would be possible with any flavour of Windows.
Recovering From Crashes
However, there are times when you will have a challenge with a particular configuration or piece of software that makes OS/2 or eCS crash or freeze up. This site should provide some resources to help you with that problem.
Drivers for new hardware are readily available for Windows but we have to wait for an eCS version.
Several sites offer excellent tutorials and information for recovery.
