But then what?

There's no obligation for any company to make a deal with them - and if they don't, there's no product and no business model anyway.

Nah, we were storage hogs. It was the family computer and most of the storage was used by my Dad for massive spreadsheets he created in Supercalc. All those formulas ate a ton of space.
