New Deal *is* PC/GEOS -- same kernel, same everything, just different name.
The Commodore and Apple GEOSes are related to PC/GEOS in name only.
Interestingly, if one looks at the Berkeley Softworks nee GeoWorks specs
for Apple and C64 GEOS, there were some hooks to make the two platforms
cross-compatible. Clever.
