Sigurd Fastenrath (Germany)

Sigurd Fastenrath

Sigurd has been using OS/2 (Warp 3) since 1995, the time he bought his first PC (a pre-installed 486 DX2/80 VOBIS PC). Since then he has used this system for private use, while not having any programming skills.

Sigurd's goal is to run OS/2 and eComStation natively on modern hardware as long as possible. Therefore, he used the program UpdCD (created by Zsolt Kadar) and created a bootable installation DVD with additional programs. Sigurd started to test eComstation with netbooks in January 2008 (first with the ASUS EEE 701, the Medion Akoya Mini E1210 aka MSI Wind, ASUS EEE  901 und 1000H, now ASUS EEE 1008HA) and wrote a How-to with the help of the community. Finally, he made a few filmlets about this and posted them to youtube.
