Legal We all know about Apple's look-and-feel lawsuit against Microsoft over Windows 2.0, but this wasn't the only look-and-feel lawsuit Apple filed during those years. Digital Research, Inc., the company behind GEM, also found itself on the pointy end of Apple's needle. Unlike the lawsuit against Microsoft, though, Apple managed to 'win' the one against DRI.

You are indeed very "bitter, broken and have a bunch of straws you are desperately clutching at [...] take a break and chill [...] proving to be a very sore loser" - that much is clear, when you imply I couldn't even read an article that I stumbled upon, some time ago (it's not a quickly thrown in discovery of today, the DOS irony bit just recalled it), in my general exploration of & some interest about the old OS field.

It was running on top of a DOS (the horror! ...or how the narrative went, and why it's historically ironic), GEM or Win 3.x could ran on top of it as well.
Either way, you yourself mention it was at most like Win95 ...which just shows how irrelevant what you say is, in context - Win95 was derided on the very same basis in the usual narrative.
