Pretty sure from Paul Allen's book that MS got the idea for word from a guy from PARC that interviewed with them and that they subsequently hired to develop it for them. Also with Dos ibm asked for an OS and they told them to talk to Digital Research but DR screwed up the meeting with IBM and IBM came back to MS asking if they could do it. Paul then had the idea of buying QDOS since it would give them a head start since time was very limited until the launch of the IBM pc. I think they ended up hiring the developer of QDOS too
