Pseudodel...wll now, dead ringer for Minnesota Sysop. :-) (I also ran that briefly, myself and The Bakery did some interesting work with it until the author got too upset at us mangling his code. <Grin> In retrospect, we really were too dangerous of coders to bother, but hey, better than than smoking crack behind the high school or whatever other kids did back when. :)

(raises hand) Zinfandel (local Cit-86 variant) BBSware, Strawberry Fields BBS, later Magical Mystery Tour BBS. Eventually a third incarnation, Abbey Road BBS, ran on JetBBS with Zinfandel running as a door.

I never really understood the term "door" at all. It makes no sense. Perhaps it's because my background involved real computers instead of the crap people tried to run BBS's on a decade or two ago. :)

Not sure where the term came from.... It is an opening into another program so as
citadel is like a home, that opening is a doorway...

I saw the term in use generally across most modem BBSes back in the day (WWIVnet, FidoNet, etc). I think the idea was that the BBS software provided a door to alternative software on the system.

I thought it was called Doors b/c it's a better alternative to "Windows".

If we called it windows, MS would probably try to sue us...

But if we called it Dindows, they wouldn't have any legal standing...

Yes they would argue that 6/7th of the name is the same and would
confuse the dumb lusers.

They would, and they did, and they didn't do too well. That's why there's still a product on the shelves called "Lindows" which is not made by the Evil Empire.
