Lotus 1-2-3 - Patenting VisiCalc by Bricklin
Authored by: Anonymous on Tuesday, May 21 2013 @ 10:35 AM EDT

Further to the story of this historic software it is
enlightening to revisit Dan Bricklin's Web Site:
www.bricklin.com and Cringely to look at the
history of VisiCalc vs Lotus. Might be of particular
interest for patents to see Bricklin's views:
Patents and Software
with a history of what happened at the time:
Patenting VisiCalc

I have the windows version. It had one of the best file transfer tools of any
of them. So I could still read my Word Perfect files and Word-pro.

Is there any chance that IBM will release the source?

I have lot's of legacy documents, that would be nice to convert to an open
format.

I got it free on the cover of a magazine. Still have it, still use it.

I have four copies of OS/2 Warp in the original boxes. Got them while working at
IBM. If we got together we could probably come up with a working system.
