Back in the olden days there were lots of GUI and pseudo-GUI interfaces for all sorts of of platforms. Some of them were fairly nice, but most of them sucked. Which is probably why they aren’t around anymore. You can revisit the Ghosts of User Interfaces Past at the Graphical User Interface Gallery.
Let’s see, of the older GUIs he profiles, I’ve used:
- GEOS (the C64 and the later PC version)
- Desqview (the text-based version)
- Amiga Workbench v1 and 2
- Windows 3.0
There are probably a few other that I’ve forgotten about.
