• 50 Years of the PC Operating System

    A great article from the Computer History Museum about the early days of personal computer operating systems and the brilliance of Gary Kildall.

    "PC software pioneer Gary Kildall demonstrated CP/M, the first commercially successful personal computer operating system in Pacific Grove, California, in 1974. Following is the story of how his company, Digital Research Inc., established CP/M as an industry standard and its subsequent loss to a version from Microsoft that copied the look and feel of the DRI software."
