Other Product Progress

The status of all of the other products is as listed in the enclosed products note. I think it's making more and more sense to look at QBASIC as a product because of the expected long delay before Microsoft delivers their true compiler for the IBM PC, the expectation that CB86 (whenever it is ready) will run only under CP/M 86, not PCDOS, and for our own use in porting our CBASIC products to the PC and other 8086/8088 systems. Also, as noted in the products bulletin, if we port SPL, we'll have done a lot of the work needed to port QBASIC already. We'd also be in an excellent position to move it to the 68000 and ace Digital Research out of the CBASIC market.
