25 Jahre PC - am 12. August 1981 wurde der IBM-kompatible PC eingeführt. An den Tag erinnere ich mich nicht mehr; allerdings an die Kampagne von Apple, die sich immer noch liest wie ein Manifest:

Welcome, IBM. Seriously.

“Welcome to the most exciting and important marketplace since the computer revolution began 35 years ago.
And congratulations on your first personal computer.
Putting real computer power in the hands of the individual is already improving the way people work, think, learn, communicate and spend their leisure hours.
Computer literacy is fast becoming as fundamental a skill as reading or writing.
When we invented the first personal computer system, we estimated that over 140.000,000 people worldwide could justify the purchase of one, if only they understood the benefits.
Next year alone we project that well over 1,000,000 will come to that understanding. Over the next decade, the growth of the personal computer will continue in logarithmic leaps.
We look forward to responsible competition in the massive effort to distribute this American technology to the world.
And we appreciate the magnitude of your commitment.
Because what we are doing is increasing social capital by enhancing individual productivitiy.
Welcome to the task.
