Yup. Exactly the same situation as with MS-DOS 30 years ago: it was basically impossible to use Compaq DOS on IBM PC or IBM DOS on anything except genuine article.Hmm, sure on this? My first PC was a Printaform (Mexican reseller of Acer). I am sure to have run on it MS-DOS 2.11 and PC-DOS 3.0 seamlessly. Around 1987.
Sure. But don't forget that Windows 1.0 was actually bundled with mouse because it was basically impossible to buy one in stores!Again, I disagree. My Microsoft mouse was bundled with Paintbrush and Show Partner. I only came to fiddle with Windows 1.01 some months after getting my mouse. And yes, with two floppy drives, Windows was quite painful to use.
"History does not repeat itself, but it does rhyme"*That* is a quote I expect to steal!
