LCARS 24 is a fast, smooth, powerful, and handsome 32-bit, TrueColor Starfleet-standard GUI with many LCARS games, applications, and utilities, the real thing, programmed from stratch in C, not Visual Basic or Flash. Standby mode displays a large clock (with MIDI alarm), calendar, and hot-key labels. Reliable as an alarm clock under DOS or on a Windows 9x machine started up in pure DOS mode (not reliable, even unstable, but operable under XP just to check it out). Handles .txt, .bmp, .jpg, .gif, .wav, .mp3, .mid, and .htm files. Compatible with FreeDOS and FreeDOS32. Best on its own machine (a late-'90s laptop) separate from one's main computer if used mainly as an alarm clock. Open-source. Porting to Linux, BSD, Mac, and Windows from sources possible. Internet functions possible without Windows on a machine with a hardware modem or other viable connection.
