Rewriting History
« on: July 13, 2008, 04:59:41 AM »
In the beginning, IBM wanted it's new PC to use the CP/M operating system but legend has it that Gary Kildall was out flying his plane when IBM came knocking on his door, so they went to Microsoft who immediately went out and bought a CP/M clone and rebranded it MS-DOS.

Nothing could have stopped the PC from becoming the dominant platform it is now, but where would Microsoft be now if they had not got their big break?
