Microsoft Multiplan for the Commodore 64

I am not here to educate on the use of Microsoft's Multiplan for
the Commodore 64. There are plenty of guides and technical pages
on the internet regarding the software. The point I will make and
I will be brief is that this was Microsoft providing software for
the Commodore 64. Not lightweight software, but for its time a 
true business package for a more than capable computer.

The size of the technical folder speaks volumes in respect of the
significance of the product and the computer using it.

And the point... Version 1.06 is dated 1981,83. At this time the
company of Commodore stood head and shoulders above the rest. And
yet in just ten years it would collapse. Yet Microsoft just grew
and grew and became the giant we know today. How things could
and should have been different.
