Software Triva

Software Trivia for a long holiday weekend

What Microsoft product has been continually published for the longest period of time?

Hints - the links will give it away:

The product is almost 25 years old . . . on Microsoft - it actually predates DOS and was originally released on the Apple II and then the TRS-80.

The 10th version (depending on how you count) just went into Beta testing

It was once used to test clones for IBM PC Compatibility

In the year 2000, the product made it into the Guinness Book of Records for having sold  21 million copies.  (That was six years ago!)  Could it be the best selling software product ever?  Guinness doesn't list it in their online version.

For more on the history of this amazingly successful software product, check here and here.

Have a great weekend and Thanks Joe P.!!!
