Summary
  • With its set of 13 accessories, the Metro utility program is everything that its predecessor, Spotlight, was not. It is a serious threat to replace Borland's Sidekick as the reigning champion in the field. The program is called Metro because its 13 "spokes" can be customized in limitless ways, the way commuters vary their paths to and from work, depending on the traffic. The choice of "spokes" includes a math calculator, appointment book-calendar, notepad, phone book-dialer, DOS shell, color-control panel, do-list manager, clipboard, watch-stop-watch, special characters chart, editor, and macro recorder-editor. With the addition of the last six new accessories, Metro has eliminated almost every problem in Spotlight.
