Actually Apple vs Microsoft wasn't ugly at all. It was the Apple fan-boi's that made any stink. Heck, Microsoft held a minority stake in Apple for a very long time.


IBM vs Compaq was nasty. Compaq directly reverse engineered IBM's tech and started the modern desktop revolution, followed by Dell, AST, Gateway 2000, Micron, HP, Packard Bell in their own ways. There were a ton of lawsuits in the 1980s between those two companies. Compaq more or less stuck a fork in IBM monopolizing the WinTel / DOSx86 platform.
