Anyway, no one could have guessed the impact that the IBM PC would have on the market. Intel was also beaten by National Semiconductor for the first 32-bit processor (the 32000). The year 1982 would see IBM throw open the market for computers, with the IBM PC, and also through two great mistakes. Apart from IBM, five other companies would dominate the year: Commodore, Sinclair, Compaq, Apple and Sun. Three of them, Commodore, Apple and Sinclair, were from the old school, and the other two, Compaq and Sun Microsystems, were from the new school, and would learn to adapt to the new ‘serious’ market in computing that the IBM PC had created.

After IBM lost out on the DOS operating system, Microsoft held out an olive branch to them by demonstrating Microsoft Windows. IBM refused to become involved, mainly because it competed with its newly developed interface, TopView. Microsoft and Lotus Development also nearly agreed to merge their companies, but Jim Manzi at Lotus Development convinced Mitch Kapor to back out of it. Microsoft’s Windows was superior to TopView as it used a graphical user interface. The only other real competitor to Microsoft was Digital Research, who had missed out on the IBM PC market.

Apple were not really impressed with the first version of Excel, and reckoned that Lotus Development’s equivalent was better (named Jazz). Another key package for the Macintosh was Aldus PageMaker from Aldus, which created a new industry, which for the first time, integrated text and graphics with a design package: desktop publishing. For years, PageMaker was the de facto standard package for graphics design and desktop publishing. 0. The year produced many good deals for Microsoft, including: • • • Microsoft signed a deal with IBM for a joint-development agreement to work together on future operating systems and environments.
