To give credit where credit is due, the "undocumented feature" dates
back far beyond Microsoft and Bill Gates to at least the early days of
IBM.

I know that it was applied by IBM to some of the early EBCIDIC character
sets and some of the bizarre "alternates" (odd characters that differed
by application).

It may have other earlier applications.

Here in the land of Microsoft, we call it Vaporware.

Not to be confused with bugs, which are called "Undocumented
Features"....
