Fruitoftheloom, your posts violates the first principle here, "be nice".
:roll:

And for the record, I'm a fan of RiscOS myself, although I consider it Retro, but I happen to like Retro.
Its a pity that RiscOS was so unknown, it was far ahead of its time, in its time. Still you can see that some other OS's have "used it for inspiration".

I was being truthful because DS posts some really off the wall posts generally tenuously related the OP.
Retired disgracefully.....

Welcome to Linux land DavidS.

It's a vast and complex place full of sink holes and volcanoes but it is the best computer operating system the human race has devised since we crawled out of the swamp.

It's sad but true that in the decades we have had computers and even standardized languages like C we have not come up with a universal standard for even simple graphics or GUI interfaces.

Even the humble standardized text input and output interface has been messed up in recent times by the arrival of the chaos that is Unicode.
Memory in C++ is a leaky abstraction .

Ah yes, standards. They make things so much easier...

For a text based windowing interface, curses is standardized by X/Open.
