The best in Msdos.

In Moscow if there is a queue of people standing outside a store then
you had better get in line because there must be some good stuff on sale.
In finland the downloads from GARBO are a good indication of what people
are standing in line for. Check this list out, and see what you are missing.

********************  BIG LIST FOR LIST LOVERS ********************
Here are the download statistics for archives at the
University of Vaasa, Finland, for the month of October 1991.  This
version of the download list is based on samples taken at 20 minute
intervals on the access time changes of the directories.  Thus the
statistics is quite approximate.  The list is cut off at 25
downloads.  The original list contained 2583 items.  The approximate
total number of downloads was 40020 files.  The files with no
description are either no longer on lists (they were
mainly old versions) or there is some technical problem with the
description.  This download statistics covers the /pc directories
(and /unix/ts).  Thus eg /mac /vms and /pc/win3 are not covered by
this statistics. 

"If you do not know how to go about getting these files you are
welcome to email me for the prerecorded instructions,
Keith Petersen (w8sdz at for SIMTEL20
information, or Craig Warren (ccw at for Oceanian garbo
mirror information.  North American users are advised first to
search for these files on SIMTEL20 or its mirror 
Respectively, Oceanian users are referred to"
