• The IBM PC is 40. Happy birthday PC!

    From hyjinx@21:1/126 to All on Fri Aug 13 15:20:22 2021
    Since the IBM PC is 40 today, here's a video documentary I made showing how
    IBM went through massive changes and made the decisions that ended up making the PC the market leader amidst the fierce competition at the time.
    Happy birthday to the PC!

    Enjoy!

    Nice re-review.

    I thought your impersonation of Bill Gates was pretty funny.

    Pro-tip, just make yourself sound like Kermit the Frog and you're set :)

    I watched it yesterday (I'm a subscriber) and really enjoyed it. It was a great summary and I definitely learned a few things. Thanks!

    I am, but I have problems with their support, so I haven't actively been
    doing anything with my odysee account.

    Cheers,
