BeOS & Derivatives "Ultimately, Haiku represents a different way of viewing your personal computer. If you think that software shouldn't be riddled with bugs and incompatibilities and inefficiencies, if you hate being forced to swap out your hardware and software every few years because 'upgrades' have rendered them obsolete, and if you find that the idea of using an operating system that's fast, responsive, and simple is refreshingly novel and appealing, then maybe, just maybe, Haiku is for you." What fascinates me the most is that Haiku's not working on a tablet version. How delightfully quaint.

Well... http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/History_of_personal_computers#The_begi... (or not mentioned in that wiki article http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/HP_9800_series_desktop_computers ; or http://www.wang2200.org/ but that's 1973 so pushing it)

I'd say at least the Datapoint 2200 can be safely counted as personal computer, and it's from "those days" - contemporary to UNIX beginnings.
