Windows "I've been writing about Windows for almost 20 years, and I feel like I've kind of seen it all. But for the past several days, I've been struggling under the weight of the most brutal email onslaught I've ever endured over these two decades. And if my email is any indication, and I believe it is, the majority of people out there have absolutely no idea what Windows RT is. This is a problem." When even Paul Thurrot is worried, you can be sure it is, actually, a problem. We're going to see and hear about a lot of frustrated customer who can't load up their 1997 copy of Awesome Garden Designer 2.0 Deluxe.

IBM-PC wasn't the first device to use the acronym "PC". There were many others before that including the IBM themselves. I believe the first actual device marketed as PC was HP's 9100A. HP marketed it as a personal computer actively, and used the acronym "PC" for it.

However the first actual PC was probably according to some guys this device called "SIMON"... http://www.blinkenlights.com/pc.shtml
