Description

O-My-God, along with Tunnel, are early pieces of eyecandy that slipped out of IBM. O-My-God was known internally at IBM as Dazzle. It likely served as a demonstration of IBM's VGA technology, some of the first computing displays capable of displaying 256 colors at once.

The program draws various shapes (circles, lines, ovals, squares, triangles) while iterating through the 255 available colors omitting black and rotating the palette. There are also a few sweeps and clears: pixelation, rolling pins, and sweeping arcs.

Unlike Tunnel, the "IBM INTERNAL USE ONLY" text seems to have been stripped from O-My-God's com file.
