Not sure if my recollections are correct, but I don't believe either DOS
(before 2.x) or the DOS version of Word were written by Microsoft. I
seem to
recall that both were purchased and re-branded.

DOS was bought from Seattle Computer Products and it was originally
intended to be a hardware test system, while waiting for CP/M-86, rather

Do not remember 8 inch ones.  I remember 10 inch, and then the 5.x
inch ones. [single sided and then double sided]

The first floppies, as invented by IBM, were 8".  There never were 10"
