KWindows is the window system, like WindInt on the CoCo. It was
included with the MM/1. The Desktop program would have been the
equivalent of CoCo's GShell. This was a 3rd party product, and may have
been sold by Sub Etha. Is Allen Huffman still lurking on this list?
Care to confirm or deny? I got the old skel.c program from the CoCo to
compile on the MM/1 -- it may have been pre-ported and posted on Delphi,
but I don't think it needed too many modifications to work in KWindows.
