Ran Geoworks Ensemble Pro 1.2 in along with DRDos 6.0 on my first 286/16.


My first experience with a GUI was on Geoworks.
My father's 286 had it, and we used it to access AOL in the early 90s.
I'm tempted to use it on my 386 build!

Bread Box Ensemble should run well. It has a few more applications and enhancements than 1.x The default user interface is a win95 like set up but you can switch it to the Motif UI in Preferences easy enough.
