High Quality Content by WIKIPEDIA articles! XaAES is a graphical user interface for the OS kernel FreeMiNT. MINT (nowadays named FreeMiNT) is aimed at systems that are compatible with 16/32 bit Atari computers such as the ST, TT or Falcon. THe combination of MiNT and XaAES is the natural successor to MultiTOS. XAAES is a free AES written with MiNT in mind, originally developed by Craig Graham (Data Uncertain Software) back in September 1995. TAken from the XaAES beta6, here is a snippet of the readme.Txt in which Craig explains his motives for initiating XaAES: "After using MultiTOS, then AES4.1, I became frustrated at the lack of a decent GUI to use the real power of the MiNT kernel - X Window is all very well, but I can't run GEM programs on it. MUltiTOS (even AES4.1) is to slow.
