The DV Tree Manifesto

DV Tree is intended to fill a gap in the world of DOS file
managers and shells - that gap, specifically, is for users of Quarterdeck
Office Systems' multi-tasking environment DESQview. DV Tree is
DESQview-specific, meaning that if you don't run it under DESQview, you
can't run it all. One of beauties of DESQview, in contrast to other
IBM-compatible operating systems such as OS/2 or Windows, is that it can
multi-task just about any DOS software WITHOUT modification - essentially,
if it'll run under DOS, it'll run under DESQview. For DESQview users,
this is both good and bad, good in that they can run whatever they already
own without having to buy operating-environment specific software, bad in
that developers, knowing that whatever they write will run under DESQview
anyway, tend not to write anything that won't run OUTSIDE of DESQview -
all this meaning that software written to take advantage of DESQview's
unique environment rarely gets written except by Quarterdeck itself. DV
Tree, I hope, will prove this tendency ill-advised.

  1. Very nice! Thank you for this wonderful archive. I wonder why I found it only now. Long live the BBS file archives!

  2. This is so awesome! 😀 I’d be cool if you could download an entire archive of this at once, though.

  3. But one thing that puzzles me is the “mtswslnkmcjklsdlsbdmMICROSOFT” string. There is an article about it here. It is definitely worth a read: http://www.os2museum.com/wp/mtswslnk/
