Sample video - a longer (1 hour aprox.) should be along in a few months.

And yes, I will DEFINITELY use the Prospell spelling checker in that video ::)

I hadn't seen Max Desktop or WOPS before.
Max in particularly looks like a polished piece of software...
An expanding array of hardware available at www.cpcstore.co.uk (and issue 3 of CPC Fanzine!)

I think I had seen them all back then - no idea where I got them from, really. I remember thinking they're really cool, even if a bit awkward with a joystick or cursor keys. I would then reboot and just play Gryzor and Arkanoid :D
