MICROSOFT executive vice president Mike Maples on Bill Gates'
promise last spring to provide a full line of applications once OS/2 had
an installed base of two million units: "The fact that someone
sells a lot of machines and bundles a lot of operating systems on its
does not a relevant market make. That happens only when people power it
on and use it and walk to their store and ask for copies of applications
that'll run on it. When that happens, we will be there."
