|Welcome to my GUI Gallery
On these pages you will find many screen shots of various desktop computer
Graphical User Interfaces and operating systems. Many different people
have had different ideas of how a GUI should work and these screen shots
show many of the more popular ones.
New: Added a couple more old shareware
apps, including a Windows 1 Mah Jong program, and ZSoft PC Paintbrush 1.05
for Windows 1, to the Windows 1.x/2.x page
New!!: At long last, I have added
Transcopy images of VisiCorp Visi on! These can be written to floppy with
a Central Point Deluxe Option Board (Or eventually perhaps even a SuperCard
Pro or Kryoflux). These images also work 100% unmodified in the PCE IBM
PC emulator, which means anyone can now see an untouched copy in action.
Get them on my VisiCorp Visi On page!
A few videos of GUIs in action:

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)
