Hopefully the thesis will confirm or deny the Bill Gates 'What is a network' I've always suspected it was an urban legend!
I was surprised by the 'Acorn Case' thesis's abstract which called Acorn a failure, whilst they did fail as a computer company, they did make money for some/most? of their shareholders when MSDW bought them up!
I wonder if MSDW maaged to make the killing they hoped for! There was some uncertaintly about Tax liabilities at the time. Unless that was appealed in the courts I suspect we will never know.
