controller. I agree, I probably could have gotten things working
faster. But using it made me realize it was far more than I
needed; DV, with its single disk, does exactly what I want, with
little fuss. If I configured OS/2 to work the way I wanted, it
would probably end up looking like DV...no mouse, no pictures,

I realize my needs are atypical, as are my preferences. I'm a
verbal kind of guy; I like to use XyWrite in command mode, never
touch the menus, hate dialogue boxes. Icons are great for some
people because that's the way they see things and think; I
prefer words.
