Description

One of the great beauties of Windows is that in the here and now you enjoy the benefits of computing's future path -- graphically oriented software. Without giving up any of the applications you're happy with today. Windows integrates the DOS programs you're already using in a wide array of Windows applications.

In addition to Windows Write and Windows Paint the package includes a collection of Windows desktop applications which you can use to manage your day-to-day activities. A calender, cardfile, notepad, calculator, and telecommunications program, just to name a few. Used together with your standard applications, they can handle an impressive list of office routines. Spend a day with Windows and the future of business computing falls into place.

Windows isn't merely an operating environment, it's an extremely useful collection of applications. And because Windows runs most existing standard DOS applications, it's ready to handle any job you've got to do today. But Windows also represents a foundation of the future.

The Windows interface establishes a common set of command conventions, drop-down menus, dialog boxes, and icons to standardize operations for all forthcoming Windows applications. Which means that once you've learned one, learning the next one will be deja vu, not start from scratch.

Windows Write and Windows Paint are the first examples of programs that embrace the standard.
In-a-Vision, an impressive computer-aided design program by Micrografx inc, in another example. Many more are now being written.
And because Windows runs standard DOS applications, you can look forward to the future, but you don't have to wait for it.
