A GUI is an alternative to typing as a means of interacting with the computer and its operating system that is intended to be superior, in some ways, to the operating system itself. It is not a replacement for the operating system e.g., DOS 3.31 or DOS 5.0. The principal features and strengths of Windows 3.0 are examined, as is a suite of programsWord for Windows, Excel for Windows, and PowerPoint for Windowswhich are collectively packaged as Microsoft Office for Windows. While not perfect, there is a significant advantage to the uniformity of the Windows environment. http://www.deepdyve.com/assets/images/DeepDyve-Logo-lg.png Library Hi Tech Emerald Publishing

Abstract

In the DOS world, Windows 3.0 is an operating environment that utilizes a Graphical User Interface, or GUI. A GUI is an alternative to typing as a means of interacting with the computer and its operating system that is intended to be superior, in some ways, to the operating system itself. It is not a replacement for the operating system e.g., DOS 3.31 or DOS 5.0. The principal features and strengths of Windows 3.0 are examined, as is a suite of programsWord for Windows, Excel for Windows, and PowerPoint for Windowswhich are collectively packaged as Microsoft Office for Windows. While not perfect, there is a significant advantage to the uniformity of the Windows environment.
