Single user PC Plus

PC Plus was released in 1985 with a primary goal of ease of use. An early employee said its functional design was inspired by the combination of a manual ledger journal, an Epson FX 80 printer, and a Canon calculator. Incidentally, Peter Bang is the grandson of one of the founders of Bang & Olufsen, the manufacturer of home entertainment systems par excellence.

PC Plus was PC DOS-based, a single user system. PC Plus' design features included the following:

  • An interface resembling the use of documents and calculators
  • Online help
  • Good exception handling
  • Minimal computer resources required

The PC Plus product was marketed through dealers in Denmark and Norway.
