Apple I thought OSNews would be a good forum to talk about a matter that has been weighing on my mind lately primarily because the site has been so focused on Apple's patents and litigation as of late. The news that HP, the largest PC manufacturer in the world is spinning off or getting out of this business is what really prompted me to write this article.

We had Phillips P2000 computers in school, later to be joined by 2 PCs.

Most people had Commodore 64s, the gurus had a Commodore 128. Later those people upgraded to Amiga's.

A few had a ZX Spectrum, Atari ST, MSX and one even had an Acorn Electron (excellent computer).

The only people that had a PC at home were the ones who got it from their employer so they could do stuff at home (and bring the results to work on a 1.44 MB floppy).

But I was a kid, mostly interested in games and PCs sucked for that.
