<operating system> One of the first commercially available GUIs.
Borrowing heavily from the Macintosh WIMP-style interface it was available for
both the IBM compatible market (being packaged with Amstrad's original PC
series) and more successfully for the Atari ST range. The PC version was
produced by Digital Research (more famous for DR-DOS, their MS-DOS clone), and
was not developed very far. The Atari version, however, continued to be
developed until the early 1990s and the later versions supported 24-bit colour
modes, full colour icons and a nice looking sculpted 3D interface.
