Merit's Cruise of the Internet

This attractive overview looks great on a Macintosh. I have not seen the Windows version.

From the README text:  "Merit's `Cruise of the Internet' is a computer-based tutorial for new as well as experienced Internet `navigators.' The Cruise will introduce you to Internet resources as diverse as supercomputing, minorities, multimedia, and even cooking.  It will also provide information about the tools needed to access those resources."

ftp to NIC.MERIT.EDU /internet/resources.  There are Macintosh and Windows versions, and README text files to explain installation procedures.
