Sellings of OS/2 in 1999: -- source: mail list

Oh, I don't know about that. They did manage to make (this is profit) 92 million off of OS/2 sales in '99. There's an article on ZDNet somewhere by Esther Schindler with this number, in case you should doubt the provenance:). However, most of these sales are not in places that most PC users would see it: cash registers (all those touch screen jobs you see in bars run OS/2), equipment control systems (Hydro Quebec, Canadian National), banks (Bank of Montreal and Canada Trust are banks that use it extensively here in Canada, for example; Deutches Bank and Bank of Brazil are a couple of others), and so on.

On the topic of the year 2010 eComStation being the best year ever. In the last 2 years, especially 2010 we have made more sales to companies then ever before. But some of these companies also required time. And as in previous years a lot of the profit made of eCS 2.0 has and HAD to be reinvested!
