DesqView!?! Now that's a blast from the past!

DesqView was great on a PC XT and on a 286 AT. Then, along with QEMM 386 on a 386, it was Out Of Sight!!! I couldn't wait to get a 386 machine. I bought a Hauppage 286 to 386 upgrade kit and could get more work done on that in an hour than most could in a day!

Even when we got a LAN with MS Windows 3.11 on it, I just ran that in a DesqView window, or two, while running all our still locally installed apps in their own DV windows. And the first app I always setup in MS Windows XtreeGold! Exploring (pardon the expression) the LAN w/XTG was always interesting, until the proliferation of 32-bit long path and filenames. Frustration soon insued.

And then, when I finally discovered ZTreeWin, the LAN, and by then the WAN too, opened up to me again. And soon, after the turn of the century, I was begrudgingly forgoing DesqView, since the company and support had long since went away, and using MS Windows to multitask.

Thanks for reminding me of those good old days.
