Topic: Paradox for DOS

Workaround to This System Does Not Support Full Screen Mode in Windows Vista -

Want to run Paradox for DOS in full screen mode? Good summary of this issue with 3 work-arounds. It seems it's better just to get used to looking at Paradox for DOS in a Window. The default font size for DOS apps is pretty small and you get a small Window on most monitors because monitors these days have much higher resolution. Increasing it to 10x18 on my Vista notebook made for a nice Paradox for DOS experience.

Microsoft link addressing this issue...
Some 16-bit DOS-based Programs and the Command Prompt will not run in full-screen mode in Windows Vista

Mike Prestwood Chapter Contributions

ISBN: 0-07-212238-2
Mike Prestwood contributed four chapters to this book and although his contribution was 15% of the book, he did not receive author credit. Mike is briefly acknowledged in the Acknowledgments on page XXI as writing "most" of the Paradox material (he actually wrote all of the Paradox material).

Forward by Michael Cowpland

I think it is interesting to read the words Dr. Cowpland wrote back in 1999 and his excitement about supporting Linux. Too bad the financial bubble burst and he couldn't follow though.

Forward from book...

With the availability of WordPerfect Office 2000 for Linux, there now exists a powerful suite of desktop applications designed specifically for Linux users. The outstanding combination of programs in the WordPerfect Office 2000 for Linux suite puts Corel out in the front as a leader of Linux technology on the desktop and brings us closer to the use of Linux in the mainstream.
