GEOS was a graphical environment operating system for Commodore and Amiga computers (they used a non-Intel microprocessor). Note a resemblance to the Apple Macintosh. It used a 32-character filename, which was better than the DOS 8.3 filename derived from a minicomputer operating system. GeoWorks was a new multitasking graphical environment for all IBM and compatible PCs. Its applications use the same user interface and share information. It is compatible with MS-DOS 5.0 and its task swapping feature (to switch between DOS programs). It prints to dot-matrix and PostScript printers, and supports networks such as Novell, LANtastic, LAN Manager, and PC-NFS 3.5. GeoWorks had three levels of interface: Beginner, Intermediate, and Advanced. You can run DOS programs, when you exit you will return to GeoWorks. You install GeoWorks from floppy disks to your hard drive (about 4MB to 7MB of space).
There are six easy-to-use applications in the Beginner Workspace: notepad, schedule planner, address book, calculator, banner creation, and a game. There is an Intermediate Workspace with its File Cabinet function, for the use of GeoWorks Pro’s template documents. DOS filenames use the 8.3 format. GEOS file names are 32 characters long, and are incompatible with DOS. You can select GeoWrite and GeoDraw. “Save As” to save files with another name. There is an overview of the File Cabinet Window.
The Advanced Workspace contains more applications. You can import and export DOS files to GEOS. GeoManager controls GeoWorks for applications and to view directories and files. There are many figures to display the directories and files. The Preferences Application tells what can be changed: date and time settings, background image, hardware settings, formats for currency, quotes, date, and time; and the look and feel of the program. GeoWrite was its graphical word processor and desktop publisher. GeoDraw was its “object oriented” drawing program to create and import graphic images, and display graphics with text.
GeoPlanner was its combination calendar, event minder, and personal scheduler. It can search the GeoDex address book. The Calculator can operate as a standard calculator or use the Hewlett-Packard RPN method. Notepad is a text editor for DOS files. The Scrapbook application can collect graphics and text items in one or more scrapbooks for later reference. The GeoDex application is a combination card file and automatic phone dialer. GeoComm was its terminal emulator and communications program with convenient access to “America Online”. It allowed access to bulletin boards, online services, or other personal computers. GeoComm only works with DOS text files. There are Games: Solitaire (Klondike) and Tetris (for one or two players). There is the Quattro Pro SE (version 3.0) spreadsheet application. It can use Lotus 1-2-3 WK1 files, or Quattro Pro SE WQ1 files; they are DOS files. The DOS Programs application allows you to run DOS programs in GeoWorks Pro, create and edit DOS batch files; or create, modify, and delete buttons for DOS programs.
