Knoware.no

Just to let you know that Knoware is up and running again after ten years or so of being nowhere. While I hope there will be something of interest for anyone interested in the QL and derivatives in general, its main interest will be for those of us who like to write programs for it and generally mes...

Re: What makes the OS for QL any better, different, unique ?

My take on "What makes the OS for QL any better, different, unique?" is that: When it first arrived the promise, at least, of the QL was of something far advanced of anything else available for home use. A "complete" SoHo system for less than the price of the software alone for a...
