Dark Mode


Amazon finally got around to delivering my new ST book, Faster Than Light which I'm really enjoying. I'm only halfway through Chapter 2 but this is a cracking book and I couldn't help but giggle when reading about ST Writer's dark mode. Sigh, how today's companies will rave on about new features as if these are... well... new!!

This line really hit home with me about Dark Mode, "The ST had that in 1985". Absolutely superb STuff.

  1. To be fair, the IBM PC, CP/M machines and dumb terminals that ST Writer was aping had it first... as their only mode...

    1. It's only a lighthearted piece mate, nothing serious ;)
