Lotus Metro 1.00
Released in 1986 by Lotus Development Corporation

Image quality: Used/some configuration file written

Lotus Metro is a set of resident desktop management tools similar to 
Borland Sidekick or Popcorn desktop. Metro includes an appointment
book, phone book, scheduler, calculator, clipboard, and a text
editor. A user can call up these tools while almost any other DOS
program is running. In addition to performing small tasks without
exiting their primary program, Metro can copy information from or to
the screen. It also include macro functionality for automating tasks
comparable to Borland SuperKey.  It was primarily targeted at
existing users of Lotus 1-2-3 and Lotus Symphony.

It was followed up by at least one update, Lotus Metro 1.1.

Metro is not very intuitive. Here are a few hints to get started:
- Activate the configuration menu: shift-alt-? 
- Press shift-alt and a letter to activate other accessories.
- F10 brings up the accessory menu, which lets you quit.
- Scroll lock allows you to move the window using the arrow keys.

Important: It seems to be incompatible with DOS 5.0 or later. The 
keyboard stops accepting input. Use an earlier version of DOS.
