In Response To: Memories of Xtree (Russ Koski)

Help! Anyone that has Xtree for Windows on 3.5" disk. My disk two has been damaged and need disk two. Thanks

> My first computer was a Headstart XT. 640k ram, 360k 5.25 drive,
> 20mb harddrive and a CGA monitor. I paid about $1000 for it. The
> XT took about five minutes to boot and the harddrive always sounded
> like a washing machine that was out of balance. I knew nothing about
> computers when I got it. Trial and (mostly) error was the way I
> learned. Dos 3.3 was the OS of the day. This XT did have XTree included

> A few years ago I went through a box of old 5.25 floppies.
