    Norton Comander is the software.

    It’s connected to the previous question through screensavers. John Socha coined the term and wrote a screen saver for Norton Commander and was probably the first to create a screen saver.

    Wasn’t Starry Night first done by Peter Norton? Nope, it (Night Sky with Stars) was even earlier and by Norton guy, John Socha.
