Ok, from what I gathered, there isn't really much to expect in this area, but I'm trying to look for the best attempt at a shell/gui that works with DOS2. I guess an "Ease for DOS2" would be great but sadly it doesn't exist. Also, I don't have a GFX9000....
I tried MSX Windows and that's a nice novelty but not quite usable....
I was wondering if there's anything else out there that's worth trying, and if there is, where or how I could acquire it.

I don't know anything about HD-Menu, but at least I know MultiMente is Public Domain. I could send you one by e-mail, if you want to... Smile

If it's public domain, shouldn't we place a nice distribution package in the downloads database? I was working on a nice shell by the way, but wolf won't allow me to finish it... Tongue Such a pity, really....

HD-Menu is a very good gui! It's a pity that there are no new versions Sad And yes... why there is not a EASE DOS2? Sad Sad

Yours,

PD: Hope this year some developper will do a new gui... (please, please) Big smile

maybe some ease hacking to make it works under dos2 and r800 machines?

Why would you want it? It won't make you browsing directories in ease orso, so I guess you'd better leave it at MM or (better, if I might say so), MultiMente Smile

MultiMente just r0X0rz! Big smile

Ease and Easy aren't the same thingy... Ease was the program that came with most Philips NMS computers sold in the Netherlands. It's pretty cool btw, but doesn't work with DOS2/HD/CF...

At the time that Philips quit supporting MSX, they gave EASE to the PTC (PTTC) so they could maintenance the package, but I never heard that they don something with. Indeed, it would be nice if someone should upgrade EASE with support for MSX-DOS 2.X
b.t.w. Didn't windows 3.x looked very similar to Ease?
