I received this e-mail from a user. I thought it'd be good to discuss, even though it has already been discussed before.


I am an occasional follower of the Seal site, but not by any means an actual member of the "Seal" community; so I am not going to join the forum just to say these few words.

What I would like would be the ability for Seal to open multiple DOS boxes, whether through task swapping or actual multitasking, perhaps with a global clipboard to allow cut and paste between them. Many this is just reinventing the wheel and I should just load WIN 3.0 and use it that way... (But I despise anything Microsoft!)

Additionally, I would like to see something operating at perhaps the point of a boot loader that does some sort of "FDISK" on RAM allowing perhaps independantly booting RAMDISKs. It seems to me that Pentium processors and even older 386 and 486 CPUs with the huge amounts of RAM currently available provide enough computing resources to handle a some sort of internal network of several actual operating systems working simultaneously and directly in RAM (rather than through an emulator) inside a single computer box. From my employment perhaps this could even allow a direct session on a PC from a mainframe or AS400 network without needing to boot into a complete operating system and then using an emulator like EXTRA.

Perhaps these things are impossible. I am no programmer of any type; so these are my "pie-in-the-sky" wish list.

That looks quite nice...
The name is DaNo, and he's got a licence to program in VB, C and Assembly Language.
What more can we say about a living legend?
