Pulling down a screen on the Amiga to reveal another one behind it (like
DPaint or something) was one of the most intuitive things I ever did on
a computer, and the smoothness of scrolling is a lie, there was no
scrolling at all! It was all real! If I didn't know any better, it just
felt like I was really pulling that screen down with my hands...
Unbelievable. It took me years to get "comfortable" with Windows'
Two things I really missed from day one on Windows: (1) seperate screens
for programs, and (2) menu at the top of the screen always!
Damn, it's the niceties like that, that I miss... ;o)
PS. Come to think of it, another thing I missed: inserting a floppy and
having an icon appear for it on the desktop... Ah well...
