Legal We all know about Apple's look-and-feel lawsuit against Microsoft over Windows 2.0, but this wasn't the only look-and-feel lawsuit Apple filed during those years. Digital Research, Inc., the company behind GEM, also found itself on the pointy end of Apple's needle. Unlike the lawsuit against Microsoft, though, Apple managed to 'win' the one against DRI.

Member since:

next fact:

Apple essentially gave Microsoft opportunity to gain monopoly with DOS, later Windows.

if Apple did not cripple GEM, and if Gary REALLY believe that GUI is future of computing (THIS IS BIGGER PROBLEM) Microsoft would not have a chance.

anyhow: Apple GAVE MICROSOFT opportunity.
