Perhaps you're thinking of the legend of "DOS ain't done 'til Lotus

Or the AARD code:

For the case of Java, however, Microsoft was actually very friendly to
the technology (for awhile). Their Java compiler and VM for Windows
were the fastest around. But this was in the 1990s, and Microsoft's
attitude toward Java has changed considerably since then.
