  • I think he means Osborned.

    Saying anything got Microsofted would mean it was a huge success despite being crap :-)

      No, I think he meant Microsofted. As in killed with a pre-emptive product announcement for something that never shipped. As in Windows for Pen Computing vs. Go [abebooks.com].

      For Paul to have Osborned, he would have to have developed Lisp, shipped it, and killed it with a premature announcement about how great Arc was going to be.

      To be sure, this is an arcane secondary definition for 'Microsofted'. :-)
