Hardware, Embedded Systems "Quick - name the most important personal computer of the late 1970s and early 1980s. Those of you who mentioned the legendary Apple II - that's fine. I respect your decision. Forced to think objectively in 2012, I may even agree. But if you just named Radio Shack's TRS-80, you made me smile. Your choice is entirely defensible. And back in the TRS-80's heyday, I not only would have agreed with it but would have vehemently opposed any other candidate."

I was just microblogging the other day about how the Model 100 was my 1st computer, and I saw that Bill Gates coded *on* it ( http://oldcomputers.net/trs100.html ) , but fun to learn that he also coded *for* it. thx for that link.
