Wine is a way to run Windows software on Linux, but with no Windows required. Wine is an open-source Windows compatibility layer that can run Windows programs directly on any Linux desktop. Essentially, Wine is trying to re-implement enough of Windows from scratch so that it can run all those Windows applications without actually needing Windows.
TTF-GDOS is a GDOS replacement that uses true type fonts as well as gem fonts.
It is small, fast & efficient and can easily be used without a hard drive.
It also incorporates features roughly equivalent to font-GDOS:
- a caching system so you can use more fonts for a given
amount of memory,
- built in bezier functions
This release includes ttf2gem, a utility program that creates accurate gem fonts from a true type font (new for 2.3)
Using true type fonts gives you 3 big benefits:
- you can choose from a vast range of true type fonts
- true type fonts are scalable so you can have almost any size
font you want
- true type fonts need much less disk storage than typical gem
printer fonts, so even on a low spec machine you can use lots
Gem fonts and true type fonts complement each other perfectly - gem fonts are
small and fast, while true type fonts are device and resolution independent so are scalable to any point size at any resolution.
- free open sourced
- font caching so more fonts can be used for the available memory
- bezier curves
- can be used on a floppy only system - no hard drive
- true type fonts avoid the need for large printer font files
- uses standard GDOS or font-GDOS drivers
This is an application that can also be fetched from https://sourceforge.net/projects/ttf-gdos/. It has been hosted in OnWorks in order to be run online in an easiest way from one of our free Operative Systems.
