In Response To: ZTree in Text Mode (Peter Geagea)

I had used XTree/Pro/Gold for years in a text mode of 28 lines. This is done by using a small DOS utility (vga28.com) who select the EGA characters in the video adapter, then the VGA display size. Thoses fonts are better looking than the VGA ones and this also give 3 lines more. Perfect.
