Agree whole-heartedly. Where is netware today? Where is Word Perfect today? Both worked well, When Novell acquired WP at the 5.x-6.0 juncture and then put out WP 6.5, 6.5 was a great product for its time and would run circles around word 1.0f and 2.0. And today? Go figure...

One thing you're missing is how Microsoft deliberately caused problems for competing software. There's currently a lawsuit over how Microsoft interfered with Word Perfect. They did the same thing to DR-DOS & OS/2, among others.
