Sorry, but Microsoft got where they are today thanks to their (dubious) marketing techniques. NO MERIT in their software. Win3.1 was a load of rubbish, GeoWorks Ensemble was a MUCH BETTER contemporary GUI.

Steve Jobs saw where it was all going and doted the LISA with a graphical interface. YEARS before Bill gates even knew what a Window was.

The innovators were the people of the Palo Alto research center of Xerox. Bill Gates is just an opportunist.

And about bundling an office suite... PLEASE... ClarisWorks on the Apple IIGS. YEARS BEFORE.

I see a contradiction here?
