Is IBM a Rule Breaker?
What images come to mind when you think of International Business Machines (NYSE: IBM)?
If you are old enough, you may imagine the clunky punch card calculating machines almost as big as the desk they sat on. Middle-aged Fools may conjure up an image of the scene, now part of commercial folklore, when IBM made the strategic decision in 1981 to allow the developer of the DOS operating system, originally created for IBM, to keep his marketing rights. A student dropout named Bill Gates and his fledgling Microsoft (Nasdaq: MSFT) have never looked back.
