Geos vs. Geos

Has anyone out there ever used *both* C=64/128 Geos and Apple II Geos?

Are they Identical, or at least similar? What are the differences,
other than the graphics resolution? Other than the disk formats, are
they compatible?

As I recall they were in no way exacutable compatible. In other words,
Geopublish 64 would never work on the Apple, but the data files could
be downloaded and with the help of some conversion program made to
load from one version to another. I also think fonts somewhat
compatible.

Apple GEOS was never very popular. It was up against the IIgs, and Mac
which were already resonable established.

Probably the resolution. The C=128 could run C=64 applications under
Geos 128, so I was hoping I could get some C=64 stuff easily. Were
they identical, though, or would using Geos on a IIc+ not be the same
as using it on a C=64?


Oh, well, I like AppleWorks better anyway.
