If you were one of those those rabid DR-dogsin the UK what would you be doing about now. .. If I were DR development, I would be hard at work on a release 5.1 that would match everything we have in Dos 5.0 plus .. Our official strategy implies we top them with Dos 5, which we will do, and then we're in the drivers seat ..

REMARK - D.M.:


"You never sent me a response on the question of what things an [application] would do that would make it run with MS-DOS and not run with DR-DOS," Bill Gates wrote in 1988. His earlier email? "I am not looking for something they cant get around. I am looking for something their current binary fails on."

Curiously enough PLEX0874_0001.PDF don't contain that quote ?

http://www.courts.state.mn.us/districts/fourth/MicrosoftTrial/Plaintiff/PLEX0874_0001.TIF

I do believe they moved the entire directory up a few IP addresses so as they could lose it. I forget which one, but if you go to one of their websites and enter ../districts/fourth/MicrosoftTrial/Plaintiff/ you'll get the contents.
