Yes, almost certainly the ones that ported it.  The core BASIC interpreter
is almost certainly the same one used in the PET, AIM, Apple II, OSI,
and all the other 6502 systems that ran MS BASIC.

Neil K. is probably Neil Konzen.  He ported CP/M to the Microsoft Softcard
for the Apple II, and wrote the other system software for that.  Later he
was the technical lead for MS's Macintosh software.

I don't have any guess for Henry L.
