It's older than that...  :-)

It was late 1978 at the Ricky's Hyatt in Palo Alto, CA, when Michel Manoni
told us he'd put his best tie on.  He talked about some protected parts of the
code (200 bytes?), that in case FORTH, Inc. folded, the code was being held in
trust by a third party and it would be released.  He also told us there was a
new product called polyFORTH.

I know.  I had a pre-polyFORTH I for the 8080 in the late 70's also, yet
Elizabeth has picked 1980 as the point when it became "real". At least in the
system I was using, the "transition" was not quite complete from microFORTH.
UNTIL was still END and WHILE hadn't been "invented" yet, REPEAT was AGAIN and
KEY was "below" EXPECT.  All those visible clues and more would disappear in
the next few revisions.
