Hi all,

I couldn't find specific references about this software in the archives, but I 
love this DOS graphics program...and am looking forward to the arrival of a 
recently purchased copy (with 5  3.5" floppies and the extensive user manuals).

DosBox on my various distros (Raspbian and RISC on a pi2 and in Precise Puppy 
on a Thinkpad G40) handles the available online versions okay. Programmer Jim 
Kent open-sourced the software (see: animatorpro.org) and the maintainer Breton 
Slivka has the non-Pro version available at github (minus the useful but 
potentially non-free fonts!) and a link to a Pro version via his blog.

I have some suspicions that Animator Pro's use of Phar Lap to stretch the 
available memory may not be compatible with FreeDOS.

If any FreeDOS users are happily running Animator Pro with no problems, please 
let me know.

The puppy linux OS on the Thinkpad G40 needs to be updated, so I could devote 
that machine to a FreeDOS system, or even dual-boot with a Linux or OpenBSD, 
which I used to have installed on that machine too.
