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."

moondevil,

You're completely right, however I also think it's a function of demand. Why bother becoming proficient in skill sets like low level assembly when many of us who already have the skills are not appreciated (monetarily or even verbally) for our knowledge?

Would be nice to get to a pub and chat about our experiences. ;)
