ADAM OSBORNE DESCRIBES LOTUS’ CHARGES AS “LUDICROUS”

The irrepressible Adam Osborne, whose first reaction to the Lotus Development Corp copyright suit over his Paperback Software International’s VP Planner spreadsheet was to say he was delighted I love a fight, has now gone into rather more detail, describing the charges as ludicrous and pointing to the multi-dimensional database of VP Planner, and its ability to read and write data compatible with both Ashton-Tate dBase and his own VP-Info as key differences: The heart of the matter is that Lotus is attempting to stifle competition he said, adding that VP Planner was compatible with 1-2-3 only to the extent necessary to minimise the need to retrain employees and redesign worksheets created with 1-2-3.
