The IBM PC turns 40

Well it is everywhere. Nerds across the world reporting on the fact it has been 40 years since IBM famously launched the Model 5150 (or IBM PC). At a time when Commodore and Apple controlled the market Big Blue, who were more known for their bland beige business machines (the clue is in their title IBM) stepped into the PC market. And made  Bill Gates a billionaire in the process! Yes it was IBM who started Bill but thats another story. But the PC was born and much of what we use today is in part thanks to IBM. Bon Anniversaire!
