Found a fascinating article on the early Microsoft Windows offerings from 1983 thought it might interest some folk.

A little tidbit I heard somewhere:  One of the reasons the Solitaire program was included in Windows was in order to help people get used to using a mouse, which were not commonly used with MS-DOS.
