1994 – Bill Gates tries to get an advantageBill Gates

A e-mail sent by Bill Gates dated  3rd October 1994 orders some of his executives to retract the documentation of the browsing extensions, but only until Microsoft’s own developers of the Office suite of applications had sufficient time to work with the hidden extensions. He orders this so that Microsoft can build an advantage over competitors such as WordPerfect. Gates further explained that without this advantage, Office could not be able to compete.
