Considering the really low traffic on win31, I think it's a good idea to
merge the lists.

PS: A few days ago I installed Calmira, the Y2K proof File Manager and
some other stuff on a 486 (DX50, 8 MB, 250 MB, 17" monitor, *old* and
*heavy* HP Laserjet II) at school. The ET4000 display driver (the rather
dated gfx card is ET4000 based) wouldn't work at first, until I figured
out it needed the B000 segment which I was already using for UMBs -
oops... Now it's running in 800x600x256 (1024x768 was flickering
terribly [87i Hz!], and the RAMDAC doesn't seem to allow HiColor or
TrueColor), which is already much better than 640x480x16. BTW: I cannot
import Program Manager groups into Calmira's Start menu without a mouse,
since the button can't be TABbed to :((( (I noticed this when setting up
a P60/32MB/545MB which only had DOS 6.22 before; now it has WfW 3.11,
Calmira and Lotus WordPro 97). Even worse, I can't open the start menu
w/o a mouse, so I had to edit calmira.ini and insert Start=Ctrl+Shift+S
in the [keyboard] section...
