Yes Keith ... I saw Microsoft's timeline and I know it is
incomplete.  It seems to ignore the previous years when it
was originally produced for OS/2.  That is why I was
questioning their re-write of 'history'!?

Marketing "Reality".  Very, very strange attempt to re-write (ignore
history).

But enough negativism, let's reminisce.  I took an early training class  for
SQL Server around  1990 when SQL Server was running on OS/2 and was a MS and
SYBASE product . The training was provided by SYBASE Corp. in a Manhattan
location.  The students and the teacher were all "Big Metal Boys" and I was
the sole SQLServer user in the class.  There was no end to the merriment as
MS and PC was made the {*filter*}of many many jokes that week.  Laughing last is
good!

I missed the Ashton-Tate / MS drop of the product was there a prior code
base to the code MS got from Sybase or was Ashton-Tate a marketing partner
only at that time?

It was the same code base. that was only a marketing partnership (I still have the Ashton-Tate
"tie-needle" from that time :-) ). AT were dropped rather quickly. Apparently, a lot of the SQL
Server cursor stuff (think 6.0) came out of that cooperation , though...

It is VERY EXPLICITLY a 10 year anniversary of SQL Server ON WINDOWS.  There
was an overall 10 year anniversary for Microsoft's involvement with SQL
Server a few years back.

 Can you blame them?  OS/2 didn't exactly go onto bigger and better things...
