As such, it could be considered a type of graphical user interface (GUI), albeit much more primitive than the later Unix , Windows and Macintosh based GUI IM software. OLMs were what Q-Link called « Plus Services » [citation needed] meaning they charged an extra per-minute fee on top of the monthly Q-Link access costs.
