Re: Donation link is broken

Today, we made a donations page at http://osfree.org/doku/en:donate. Here we detailed the donation methods (currently, via a Patreon page: https://patreon.com/osfree/ or a bitcoin wallet, 1JZRh6xM3WWzesWzig2m8MdTDeCtAzDKQ4). We posted a news item at the osFree home page: http://osfree.org/doku/en:ne...

Updated ISO

I updated the ISO image with the current version: ftp://osfree.org/pub/downloads/osfree-demo-0.0.4.8.zip
It is better run in QEMU or on a real machine. VBox should work too.

Re: Support of third party programming languages

Yes, unfortunately, FreePascal is still EMX-based. EMX is obsolete now; Python and Perl seems to be up-to-date. Unfortunately, the manpower of OS/2 programmers is limited. So, someone needs to update them, but still nobody to take. Volunteers are needed for porting each program, but too little OS/2 ...

Re: Support of third party programming languages

There are Perl, Python, PHP, MySQL and FreePascal ports for OS/2 (not sure about Ruby -- never used it).

Plus, there are some books available, for example there was "The Art of OS/2 Programming" at http://hobbes.nmsu.edu. I have some books in electronic form, so ...

Re: IS there a bootable ISO file

Yes, unfortunately, Yoda's ftp is currently down, so the two upper links were broken. But we have the same files available from the main osFree ftp too, so I fixed the links, so now they point to the working location. I updated the download area, also the same download area is available via ftp: ftp...

Re: Donation link is broken

Hi, generalram. Glad to see you here :) There is a silence here, since old forum was died because of a server crash at http://os2world.com at the end of 2012. I restored everything that was possible to restore from archive.org, but not everything. Yes, we moved from sourceforge to github a year ago....
