Atari used a v2 source tree. We tried to recover it all, but there was
water damage to much of the DRI archive in Monterey. I've got a manifest
of what was lost and it's enough to make a grown geek cry.

Note that the GEM mailing list has never been on Yahoo! - I've hosted it

Political correctness is a doctrine, fostered by a delusional, illogical
minority, and rabidly promoted by an unscrupulous mainstream media, which
holds forth the proposition that it is entirely possible to pick up a turd
by the clean end.
- I remember GEM on the PC and Atari ST.
The Atari one was better since Apple didn't sue to remove overlapping windows..
I didn't know anyone still owned the rights to DR-DOS or GEM.
I was talking to Herb Johnson about GEM a couple of years ago.
I think he tried to link one of your pages but it is broken.
