Microsoft Windows 3.0 has finally arrived. It was, by all accounts, a difficult birth, accompanied by klieg lights and hoopla stretching years into the past. In many respects, Windows 3.0 was very much like dBASE IV. Both Windows and dBASE IV shipped early versions that didn't work well. Both were embroiled in controversy and promised more than they could offer. They endured a prolonged period of ‘vaporware’ status and were from leading companies.
