|I have been following Seal from the sidelines for some months. I am not a programmer; so I have hesitated to join this forum and probably won't post here again.
Whatever... here are my 2 cents:
For my computing what I need is not new programs, but better organization of those I have. When I write something I need my references and bibliographies visible right along my editor. I expect that coders might carry examples in extra windows for reference also.
That is why what I would like to see are DOS windows (DOS boxes in DOS - hopefully with block and paste between them) and a good, easy to use DOS application launcher, tied together with a global menu and utilities like the applets in DOS Navigator including a clipboard. Actually lack of DOS boxes is all that DN really lacks. Sorry I guess that I am not that much into music. An actual GUI? sorry I really don't need that either; my programs provide enough of that already. What I need is a shell to work them in.
At any rate this is all very much FWIW.
I'm outa here.
