High Quality Content by WIKIPEDIA articles! Released by Symantec in 1985 for IBM-compatible systems, Q&A''s flat-file database and integrated word processing application is cited as a significant step towards making computers less intimidating and more user friendly. Chief among its features was a natural language search function based on a 600 word internal vocabulary. The system gained quite a following and is still being found in use today. Originally a natural language research project involving a group of Stanford University researchers led by Dr. Gary Hendrix, funded first by the Department of Defense Small Business Innovation Research, and later by venture capital investments, Q&A evolved into both a useful business productivity tool and the foundation of Symantec. The now-famous professional poker player Barry Greenstein worked on the Q&A the project during his employment at Symantec.
