  • When I try to use the first disk (in VM Virtualbox, Dos6.22), I get this message:

    Hi, this version will run on GEM ?, or is only for DOS with GEM Gui on it ?
  • On PCs, GEM was a GUI for DOS, rather than a standalone OS.
  • Pedantically, Windows 1.0-3.11 were also just GUIs rather than a standalone OS. Some of this stuff is hard to classify due to the way people used it.
