Yep, MGR was from Bellcore labs. It was the first GUI I used on Linux,
since initially the requirements were to draconian to run X (actually I
think MGR was running on Linux before X).

Kind of cool, but it was slow. I put it on a 386sx/16 laptop w/4Mb RAM
thinking that it would be faster than X. Turns out that using the 'Mini-X'
distribution that used to be available that X was faster for what I needed
to do (preview DVI files).
