Dark Mode


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

This line 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 ;)
