I am sending you a copy of PC Excel. It is significantly enhanced over the Mac version and I hope you get a chance to use it. I would value your feedback. It is too bad that you never got a chance to make Framework into the mainstream product it deserved to be. In the objects we are building for the object oriented versions of our languages we will have a concept very similar to your frame.

I had hoped it would work out for you to join Microsoft, and create a California development center for us. I think you are very talented and committed to doing great software , and I would have enjoyed working directly with you. Maybe next time.

In any case I am sure GO will be an exciting place. If there is anything Microsoft can do to support your efforts as an ISV, please let me know. I hope we get a chance to exchange ideas at one of the upcoming industry get togethers.

Dear Bill:

..

-
Which leads me to the topic of GO Corporation. We're preparing a
+
-
proof-of-concept demonstration for early June. We're at a point in our
+
-
planning and development where it's now clear to us that cooperation
+
-
with Microsoft is both appropriate and of potential mutual interest.
+
-
 
+
-
Jerry and I would appreciate the opportunity to share our product plans
+
-
and show you the demo in our labs on a confidential basis .. Both Jerry
+
-
and I are very interested in your thoughts and comments on GO's plans.
