I'm jumping on here late, but thanks for all this, Bernie. It's useful.
I think Paradox for DOS would've enjoyed a much longer life had Borland
made an effort to keep it running under Windows command boxes. While a
GUI can help present data in ways that a character-based interface
cannot, there is nothing inherent in a GUI that is necessary for a
database to function.

And as I have yet to find the time and/or money to move to a different
platform, I'm still using it on a limited basis for several tasks at my
non-profit organization.

So again, thanks!
