Workbench 1.0 supports only one resolution: NTSC 640×200 (doubled in height here to compensate for strange apect ratio). At first launch it only shows the menu bar/status line (here with operating system version and free memory), icon for the inserted disk, and two controls for navigating between screens.
The empty desktop for Workbench 2.04 contains the Workbench window with icons for floppy drive and RAM disk, and the message line (at this moment copyright notice) at the top of the screen, doubling as menu – similarly to Mac OS and NeXTSTEP, Workbench has only one menu for active application (per active screen), shown and operated using right mouse button. The desktop and other screenshots are shown in the default (if strange) 640×256 resolution, doubled in height to preserve aspect ratio. Default Amiga video hardware also provides an interlaced 640×512 mode, with the very same fonts and windows. (This applies to PAL version, the NTSC resolutions are 640×200 and 640×400 respectively.)
Lisa’s desktop is filled with checkerboard background, which cannot be changed. The single menu bar is located at the top of the screen, identically as in Mac OS. The icons at the desktop feature first-ever trashcan, control panel, clipboard and external hard disk.
The first screenshot shows Finder, while the second one MultiFinder, new to this edition of Mac OS. MultiFinder allows running more than one application at a time, and can be noticed by an icon in top-right corner of the screen.
Clockwise in all the corners we have: menu for currently active application (in this case workspace itself), the Dock, Recycler and icon for the only active application (File Manager, which cannot be closed). Please note that in OPENSTEP you can’t place documents or application on the desktop itself (at least without the use of third-party applications).
