Title Perfect journey: WordPerfect helping the world communicate
Date 1994
Description Can you imagine how difficult communication would be if the telecommunications industry had not adopted open industry standards on a global basis? As it is now, you don't have to know how the PBX system works in order to make a telephone call. You just pick up the phone and dial the number. That's how it should work in the computing industry as well. You should not need to know how the network system works in order to E-mail a document to your friend in New York. And you should not need to know all of the in's and out's of your current software applications in order to use new technology. After all, computers should be serving you, not you serving the computer.
