MSWLogo is a rare, Logo-based programming environment, originally based on LISP and intended for educational purposes.
The one big plus of Logo, however, is that as it was created for education, it's remarkably easy to learn. It's a great introduction to programming for kids or those that want to get started in programming. It's not all boring either - although graphs and charts are its main application, MSWLogo can be used to create games or programs for Windows.
The MSWLogo interface is about as basic as it gets - in fact it's a bit like using MS Basic itself. There are tons of tutorials and even video guides to get you started with Logo, so you'll be able to build your own square or graph in no time.
MSWLogo is a great way for beginners and kids to get started in programming but it's so limited and rarely used that you'll find it doesn't go very far.

I used it to create formula based drawings for a patent application, rather than a CAD program or Visio. You can save the drawings as gif or bmp. Even runs on linux under WINE. The current version is old because it does what it needs to.
i think logo is great. i like that i can write my name and draw pictures. i don't like it because it is picky.
