OMNIVIEW (formerly TASKVIEW) is a preemptive multitasker for DOS
programs; this differentiates it from Microsoft Windows, Software
Carousel and others which do not provide true multitasking. You
CAN achieve true multitasking with Microsoft windows by running
multiple Windows '286 applications inside of OMNIVEW.
Unlike Quartedeck's DESQView, each OMNIVIEW process is a full
screen application - this makes OMNIVIEW both smaller and faster;
A very important consideration when running concurrent real time
applications (such as high speed communication programs or
industrial control systems) or when relying on memory hungry
device drivers and TSRs. Any TopView/DESQView aware application
will run as expected.
In contrast to VM/386, OMNIVIEW does not utilize (nor impose the
overhead of) the '386 virtual 8086 mode. Each process operates in
The increasingly popular "dos extenders" may be fully utilized
inside any OMNIVIEW partion, allowing multiple concurrent
multi-megabyte applications. While OMNIVIEW is compatible with
Quarterdeck's QEMM and other virtual control programs, we
recommend Qualitas' 386^MAX ($49.95) to get the maximum benefit
of OMNIVIEW on '386 systems; the professional version of this
program ($100) will also load device drivers into high memory,
maximizing the space available to run other programs.

OMNIVIEW's features include:
-- As many as ten concurrently operating programs on a single
-- Runs on all PCs from 8088 to 80386 based systems.
-- True multitasking with user specifieable time slice duration
(127 levels) and relative process priorities (15 levels).
-- Utilizes LIM 3.2, 4.0 and EEMS memory.
-- TSR's loaded before OMNIVIEW can be accessed by all processes.
-- TSR's loaded inside partitions act just as any other program,
to remove them just kill the partition.
-- Supports all standard video adapters in all modes.
-- Loads in as little as 10K of conventional memory.
-- INCREASES memory available to run DOS applications by over 80K
on some systems.
-- Keyboard macros and the ability to "cut and paste" among
-- Easy to use menu interface.
-- Command line interface with a powerful collection of utility
programs allows experienced users maximum flexibility.
-- Free technical support and much more.
The OMNIVIEW Application Programmer's Interface (OAPI), available
for the asking, has supported C, ASM and Turbo Pascal programmers
since 1986. All OAPI applications have the ability to:
-- Create and eliminate sibling processes.
-- Suspend, activate and control sibling processes.
-- Send keystrokes to programs running in other partitions.
-- Send and receive various message objects.
-- Perform time sequenced, background events.
-- Establish shared data areas.
-- Create "invisible" customized user interfaces to integrated
-- and much more.
