That=B4s my best word, just that.

I always thought that Calmira was a Friendly Desktop for Win 3.1/3.11.

This "old Windows" has abandonware "rights", so I guess that I might be
freely used, and it is quite good piece of software to run with "oldies",
and you may choose your own DOS, maybe DR-DOS or FreeDos as first best
choices. I never thought that Calmira might be an alternative to anything
else, just a 16 bit GUI enhacement, that migth even run some 32 bits
console=B4s with win32sc.

I really regret to get all this confusion from this list, as I clearly
understand that this is not the purpose of this list.=20

The issue is to get rid of IExplorer as "needed browser" in the OS, and here
I am listening that there is project to include in a "new Calmira" the
latest MS bowser...or am I SO confused that I am misunderstanding "much=

I agree that there is need for more "crossplatform utilities", freely
distributed, on Copyleft or other "rights" policies, and make a good start
for more standards to get some really "free-hardware", maybe not in the high
end SOHO, but at least for many education projects, and have better and more
affordable Home PCs...

Isn=B4t this a too ambitious project ?, I would be glad to get more friendly
MultiBoot alternatives, such as some XOSL ( it seems that something is
"hapenning there"), better reading access to any FS from a new "QDOS", a
small "reflexive" OS without the hard GNU/Linux "kernelled rules", better
crossplatforms possibilities and "more online help", with "keystokes
standards", a F1 request should bring a pulldown menu, without too much
"graphic" fuzz...just to get more people to understand basics,   =20

HTML has standards, an for many people this "universal" language is
"enough", ...why don=B4t we get more close to more "easy small standards" to
run more FREELY our "basic PCs" ?

Thanks to all the people that bring new ideas, do tasks for a better
understanding and keep on, I don=B4t mind at all to get confused, it is also=
way to some knowledge...
