I have tried GEOS, DOS, Win 95, and Win 3.1 on my Dauphin. I liked Win95
but it didn't have any pen support, which sort of defeats the purpose of
a pen-based computer. I was hot on the trail of drivers from a Microsoft
guy but he was a real loser and flaked out on me, so now I'm interested
in trying OS/2 for pens. Right now I'm using Win 3.11, and it sucks.
Has anyone tried OS/2 for pens on the Dauphin DTR-1? What was the speed like
and what was the HDD requirements like?
Or if you don't own one, will OS/2 fit well into the specs of the DTR-1
(below)? And with Pen extensions?
For those of you who don't know, the Dauphin DTR-1 is...
