The GEM I have runs on DOS. (I also have a copy of GEM for the Tandy2000,
but my T2000 doesn't have enough RAM to run it.) Yes, it was Digital

Back in my Desktop Publishing days, I ran Ventura Publisher under runtime
GEM on top of DOS. I also seriously looked at GEMDraw, but rather picked
a new drawing package that ran on Windows 2.11 called CorelDraw :-)
Little did I know that years later Corel would buy Ventura Publisher.
