re: Did you ever use DOS extenders, and if so, which was your favorite one?

Ha! Old school!

We used to use QEMM and I think the last version we used much was QEMM 386 if I remember correctly. I think that's the one where they added switching between multiple apps and we all wanted that.

However, it was unstable and ran up against Tandy/Radio Shack (where I worked at the time) getting early releases of a new version of Windows. Version 3.0 took a product most of us hardly cared about and made it not suck. We had all switched pretty fast, even before it shipped as a product.
