KWindows is the window system, like WindInt on the CoCo.  It was
included with the MM/1.  The Desktop program would have been the
equivalent of CoCo's GShell.  This was a 3rd party product, and may have
been sold by Sub Etha.  Is Allen Huffman still lurking on this list? 
Care to confirm or deny?  I got the old skel.c program from the CoCo to
compile on the MM/1 -- it may have been pre-ported and posted on Delphi,
but I don't think it needed too many modifications to work in KWindows.
