The DOS Man

Tim Paterson was working for Seattle Computer Products back in the late 1970's and in August 1980 released his QDOS (Quick and Dirty Operating System). Near the end of 1980, they released a new version of QDOS and Microsoft bought non-exclusive rights to distribute it. July of 1981, Microsoft bought all rights to QDOS and MS-DOS was born. Just found out that Tim has a blog -- he is not a frequent poster (seven entries in four years) but it is fascinating reading.
