"Window Master" by Bill Vergona and marketed through Cer-Comp LTD is an 
enhanced Basic for a 512K Coco3. It gives you amongst other things a RAM 
disk, event trapping using the Coco3 GIME interrupts, and up to 31 
active Windows.

In short it creates a "point and click" environment familiar to those 
with the OS-9 MultiView or more modern PC equivalents.
