Or QDOS - I mean, MS-DOS? Or Spyglass Mosaic - I mean, Internet Explorer? Or SyBase - I mean MS SQL Server?
Or Vermeer's HTML editor? Bruce Artwick's flight simulator? Forethought's slideshow program? Or Wang's OLE? Or Cooper Software's BASIC compiler? Or Lattice's C compiler? Or OneTree's SourceSafe program? Or Digital Equipment Corporation's MICA variant of VMS, perhaps better known today as MS Windows NT? Or Dynamical Systems' Windows kernel improvements? Atomic Games' Close Combat? Fox Systems' database? Shapewear's Visio? Or Microsoft's clone of Quicken?
