I didn't get any Desktop with my MM/1 either, and even the buyers who got the 
whole disk set (OddJob, etc.) did not, AFAIR.

In fact, I don't even recall a Desktop (DeskMate?) or even a GUI kit ever 
coming out.  I rolled my own GUI for UME back on the Coco, ported it over in C.

Maybe you mean K-Windows, the graphics package, copied fromt he Coco3 with 
many improvements.  It could be used as the bare bones foundation to write a GUI.

Some guys did come out with a really fine GUI system, but never distributed 
it that I know of.  This was back when we were still passing files around on 
CompuServe and Delphi.

I do agree that the AT306 never came close to the MM/1 for software support.  
The guy in charge of selling the AT306, Bill something, even tried to port my 
UME to it, but after 18 months of fighting with MGR he called it quits.
