Windows 98 footnote[edit]

In 1996, Microsoft new products in Redmond Washington was shown proprietary detailed specifications from J. S. Wright. Microsoft head of new products said "Its the greatest thing they have ever seen". It was used to devlop much of the workings of Wndows 98, primarily the Original concept of the Dynamic link as text is entered on word, or anywhere else, the user can click on text such as a doman name and instantly drill into that website, and drill endlessly forward or backword in new pages or windows. Even more amazing was that the system had been developed and implemented first on the supercomputer IBM series changing the "dumb" green screen batch processor into the most revolutionary user friendly system in existence n any platfom. The value of enrichmnt to Micosoft in the largest most successful softwre release in history is in the 10s of billions, and in litigation could result in a Trillin dollar reward making Mr Wright the wealthiest person in history.

It's unclear exactly what part of the text should incorporate your suggested change. Also, Office is mentioned under "Microsoft Business Division". — Andy W. (talk ·ctb) 21:09, 15 May 2016 (UTC)

Edit request 17 May 2016[edit]

Under the "Business Division" section there should be an inclusion of the Microsoft department called, "US Small and Midsize Business (SMB)". This is a subdivision of the Business Division that deals with small businesses. They operate a regularly updated blog full of content geared towards entrepreneurs and they also have a yearly contest that awards small businesses up to $20,000 in prize money.
