🗓️ Technical trivia
On June 18, 1979, Microsoft introduced BASIC for the 8086 16-bit microprocessors. This was a stepping stone for Microsoft as it partnered with the Seattle computer products company.
In 1980, IBM wanted to use the CP/M operating system for its next computer. Talks with CP/M creator Gary Kildall fell through. In 1981, IBM awarded Microsoft a contract to develop a CP/M-like operating system.
Instead of developing it from scratch, Microsoft bought a copy of CP/M, 86-DOS, from Seattle Computer Products and sold it to IBM as PC DOS (later known as MS DOS).
