FlashHarry: i had no idea that hypercard was that influential.
meanmutton: R.A.Danny: Lotus Notes is friggin awesome.That anyone could possibly believe that makes my head want to explode.
pute kisses like a man: and American's reliance on SABRE is the reason for the scheduling debacle after being acquired by United.geez, SABRE was around forever.
metallion: I did an awful lot of editing in Wordstar. I'm surprised Qmodem/Telix/Telemate weren't on the list. Those programs opened up a whole new world of communication. They could have even added something like Wildcat BBS..//Fark, I'm old...
TuteTibiImperes: I was with them up until Minecraft. I'd offer up instead - WinAmp. The MP3 and digital music revolution has completely changed the course of a major industry, and WinAmp was the tool that allowed most people to hear their first MP3 files.
DjangoStonereaver: I actually agree with most of the article, but would substitute Pagemaker for Minecraft.
R.A.Danny: meanmutton: R.A.Danny: Lotus Notes is friggin awesome.That anyone could possibly believe that makes my head want to explode.It's actually not that bad, people just think it is an email program and don't use 1/10th of what it can do.It isn't a very good email program.

MBP2112: Eddie Adams from Torrance:QEMM/DesqViewNo lie, I just finished a conversion for a client that was running Q&A (database/WP package) with DESQview and QEMM under MS-DOS 6.22 up until 2 months ago. Q&A was networked across multiple workstations to a server running Novell Netware 3.11. He's now running a package called Sesame (descended from Q&A), with Win7 workstations and server.I built a good deal of that Q&A system's programming over the years, and as much as it took a lot of creativity to do stuff that modern software allows you to do without thinking, we never found something we couldn't do. Dead-tree document scanning and retrieval, using softfonts to get custom imaging on printed documentation, dispatching service techs with messaging, driving telemarketing systems...This is not a repeat from 1986.
