And be sure to check out my favorite GUI VisiCorpVisi On now with a downloadable hard drive image that you can run under MESS 0.101 or later. Back in in 1983 there was a GUI platform and office package for IBM PCs called Visi On from VisiCorp. Legend has it Bill Gates saw a demo of this running at the 1982 comdex running on an IBM PC. He freaked out because Microsoft didn't have anything like this yet, ran back to Microsoft Headquarters, and had them start work on what, several years later, became Windows.

And if you haven't already, don't forget to laugh really hard at Microsoft BOB! And the new Microsoft Bob: Windows 8! (Or cry, if you are forced to use it)
