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 ?

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.
