1992, the ``resources of Autodesk'' were still funding ``talent of
the Xanadu team'' which had not, as of that date, produced anything
remotely like a production prototype-in fact, nothing as impressive
as the 88.1x prototype which existed before Autodesk invested in Xanadu.
On August 21, 1992 Autodesk decided to pull the plug and give its
interest in Xanadu back to the Xanadudes.
