"Les Howell"

Microsoft hated the competition
and so captured the control-J function (which happens to be a line
feed.)  This meant that the Windows systems would not run Wordstar.

That's bullshit. Ctrl+J is a shortcut for Justify and... a paragraph mark in text controls.

The Wordstar team worked out a new
interface, but just as they released it, Microsoft made another low
level change to the windows interface that made the Wordstar team have
to create yet another work around, missing the market window.

In which version it made that change? Stop spreading FUD.
