Hardware, Embedded Systems If there's one over-used buzzword currently making the rounds in the technology industry, it's 'post-PC world' - or the notion that desktops and laptops are a dying breed. Todd Bradley, executive vice president of HP's printing and personal systems group, thinks this is a nonsensical notion - and he's right.

I think I basically said that ;) Pretty much the spec for creating expansion cards were there for manufacturer's to make, and then it was more or less reversed engineered to create their own BIOS to emulate the IBM PC. If the other makers (Apple, Atari, Commodore) had opened themselves up for clones, the computer landscape would probably be VERY different today.
