Nice clear clock.
DECTPU EVE EDITOR
The standard OpenVMS text editor, here shown running in a decterm. The editor
can also be started with a DECwindows interface.
The DECwindows version of DEBUG displays by default if you have a valid DISPLAY
environment configured. The character-based version is very similar in layout,
and both support the application keypad shortcuts.
The image manipulation/conversion program. At the time I first saw it I thought
it was beautiful to behold - some of the custom widgets, especially in the
colour editor were fantastic given the standard set of xaw and motif widgets
available at the time. It just worked, and has continued to work and be highly
useful to this day.
VAX MOSAIC 4.2
or css support.
An old favourite in my first job between 1991 and 1993 - many a full compilation
was accompanied by a little xmahjong. Still highly playable today and it's never
got any easier.
The 'odd man out'. When ID Software released the source code for Wolfenstein
there was frenzied efforts to port it to virtually everything. One of those
ports was the X-Windows port of which this VAX version is a derivitive. Fully
playable except for dire sound support.
