Sweet Mother Of... well, at least it was the most network secure version

Updates? What's that?

You have a point there. If I recall correctly, the only updates were
incorporated quietly into the releases. I don't off hand even remember
back-ports or updates to existing installations. But then, how would you

a single, isolated, user in mind.

Terminal? There is a very nice program called Procomm Plus version
2.1 for Windows 3.1. I know there is a version for Windows 95, and I
believe it even had a DOS version.
