It's a great OS for beginners, and the german language support
(important here in Germany) is acceptable. It runs on most
hardware I've tried it, and it runs sufficiently fast. Still
I would not use it as my desktop system because my individual
preferences do not align with the project goals. :-)

No, I prefer real OS/2. :-)

There are only a few legacy applications I use at very few
occassions, that's why I still have a OS/2 Warp 3 installation
on real hardware here. eComStation is said to be a good
successor, but as far as I know, it costs. For just "trial
and error" too much, especially because I have already paid
for OS/2. :-)

Yes, have been using it (as well as BeOS). It's especially
interesting for devices with limited hardware.

Try those, it will definitely be interesting. Probably you
can use virtualisation to run most of them.
