RE: Trivia...
Sounds close to Windows 3.0... But 3 authors, and i'm reading ~1990 May? I'm not confident without more research. I have only a few minutes left until I'm leaving though.

RE: Trivia...
This is tougher than you'd think.

1) Because using 3 in any context probably won't work lol. Anything indexed is probably a list of the names of the people that developed this program, instead of saying how many...
2) You can search for the string: "February 1991" and all combinations and other representations of that string value to allow google to search for exact matches, and have Software and/or Program outside of quotes to allow it to search for all things in that category, but with this general of a description there's probably lots of programs that were developed around that time and with 3 developers. Unless you get lucky, you'll be guessing more than once lol.

This question is on yahoo answers, although I don't think anyone nailed the answer Tongue2
I tried Google search but no luck, all I got was what Ace said.
