DR-one

- Dealing Room Online Networking Environment
 
DR-one was an integrated real-time foreign exchange/money market dealing room solution linking applications from diverse technical platforms and market information services, both digital and video, in a single, menu-driven, windowed, multi-screen workstation. 

DR-one operated under MS-DOS, OS/2 and Windows and ran on the IBM PS/2 and the IBM PC over token-ring network and TCP/IP, using multiple windowed display screens to provide easy, real-time access to a variety of service and applications simultaneously. Working on a multi-window, multi-screen, windowed video application in 1988 was amazing. We got some attention.

Favorite sayings from those days include; "look at that!" and "it's just like a bought one".

I spent 10 years on this project before it was retired, it led me to Luxembourg where I lived 10 years - this page and some fond memories are about all that is left.
