Yeah, I remember when I saw that back in the day and I wondered "Who the hell is this Microsoft?"
I hadn't used a PC back then and Microsoft were not what they are today.
Can't understand why you're so surprised, DDNI? My impression was that Basic was MS:s copyrighted language for beginners so it's not very strange that they developed the Amiga version is it? Besides, who cares? Basic was fun back in the day but sucks pretty badly imo. Regardless if it's Amiga Basic or Basic on the PeeCee.
