You're splitting hairs. WPS was built from PM code, so technically
both were "included" however the default shell in 2.x was WPS not PM like
it was in 1.x.

The point is Microsoft played dirty with IBM, Stac, Digital Research and
many others and they continue to behave the same way with Novell.
IBM was able to sustain the damage. Others were not as lucky.
