Apple "Thanks to 35-year-old documents that have recently surfaced after three-plus decades in storage, we now know exactly how Apple navigated around that obstacle to create the company's first disk operating system. In more than a literal sense, it is also the untold story of how Apple booted up. From contracts - signed by both Wozniak and Jobs - to design specs to page after page of schematics and code, CNET had a chance to examine this document trove, housed at the DigiBarn computer museum in California's Santa Cruz Mountains, which shed important new light on those formative years at Apple."

The problem is that the web is full of JavaScript developers that never learned anything about hardware and low level programming like we did back in the day.

Alone the common confusion that a language runtime == VM makes me cry, kind of.

It is as the actual generation does not have any idea how computers work.
