Agreed. So, everyone is busy writing docs now? :)

Initially MS wasn't aware of the bad publicity this could create, so it 
was deemed a non-problem. After the bad publicity arose, it became their 
first priority to switch over to NT. That took as long as it took, but 
it was first priority.

The developers of BeOS were compelled to develop under BeOS. The CEO 
said that the product would only become good, if the developers actually 
had to work with it. They were given intentionally slow machines, too :)
