I am kinda interested with the output result of this piece of software that i've never used. This guy is really amazing, he also shares his works for public.

the font looks like the one that Sher music is using, the combination of its own clef with opus's noteflag

short description is here

At first glance, the beam stems look too tall.

Isn't it ancient legacy software? The article is from 1986 !

I've seen this used on ancient computer scores from the 90s. I think most users had to write in the lyrics by hand with it.

Definitely not a fan of the output.

As an aside, Thorlaksson's arrangements are not too well-regarded by guitarists.

It would be nice to find a web site showcasing old notation programs with examples of interface and output. Professional Composer / Composer's Mosaic. Igor Engraver, Personal Composer, Amadeus / Vivaldi. http://www.acadiau.ca/~gcallon/www/others.htm has others.
