MSX was a "standard" that allowed machines to share mostly BASIC source
code, it was popular in Europe for about 3 tears then died. I don't know the
involvement of MS in that atempted "standard" but since it was crappy from
the start I would believe they originated it ;). I think it was followed by
MSX2, it was enhanced to keep up with the increase in computing power.
