Tendencies Related To The Operating Systems
Written by Mingo
Since the release of Windows'95, programmers worldwide are getting used to this new reality, due to its increasing acceptance.
Some argued if those real demos days would be over, but until now it didn't happen.
Now in 1998, we can say that the best thing to do is making Windows'95 friendly demos.
Even DOS-executable programs could get more attractive under a PIF shortcut and a respective icon.
Think about the advantages of all this thing: CDs and Hard-Disks can be easily organized in a way to let us watch a nice demo just by doubleclicking on its icon.
In fact, a DOS executable following this concept is currently the most compatible kind of program available, because it will certainly run under any other OS such as OS/2 and MS-DOS, as well it could be emulated in other platforms.
