GoofProg, you are certainly no "goof" in any sense of the word at all!  I learn from you all the time!

         You are conflating Digital Research and Digital Equipment Corporation (DEC).


         The full wikipedia article on MS-DOS, which is quite thorough, is worth a read.


         I spent years working on DEC equipment from the PDP and VAX lines.  I also worked, briefly, on the DEC Rainbow line of PCs, when they were trying to break in to that market, which didn't turn out well.
