The Wall Street Journal publishes an articles where Microsoft ‘announces the end of personal computing as you now know it’. In 1980, Microsoft introduced MS-DOS and made personal computing possible. By 1990, Microsoft Windows version 3.0 was launched. This version provided a whole new look and users were able to work by pointing at simple graphics instead o having to memorize volumes of complicated keyboard commands. They could locate all files by looking through a menu bar and work with a wide variety of different applications simultaneously.
At this time, there were millions of people currently using some version of Microsoft Windows software. Engineered Software saw the opportunity and became an industry supporter and worked directly with Microsoft founders to ensure PIPE-FLO® was an industry leader in innovation.
