E.A.S.E

E.A.S.E is a desktop interface with pulldown windows and icons to allow you to perform various housekeeping tasks.

It was originally published by Gigasoft as GigaDesk and then re-released as EASE by ABC Elektronic.

In common with many of the early QL Front Ends, the look of E.A.S.E is based on GEM.

The program includes a built in sliding square puzzle game and a calculator.

This was first released in November 1985, and sold as a package with the Giga Soft Mouse. GigaBASIC was written by the same authors to allow you to create similar routines in your own programs.

Thanks to the two authors, and the QL Software preservation project, this program has now been released as freeware.
