Ummm, there are too many antecedents in the preceding paragraphs for
me to parse precisely what you mean by "it". But anyone who signed
up with MSDN (actually, I believe they called it the "Developer
Library") back then might have the "it" if it's software you're
thinking of. MS was in the habit of distributing just about
everything that was available just for the asking.
Not at all like the situation today, where MS has turned the
Developer Network into a money-making venture. Back in the day, it
was my impression that it was a money-loser whose primary goal was
expanding the reach of Microsoft products.
