Some interesting articles, as usual, in the latest issue:
- External Characteristics of Computer Operations: Toward Large Conversational Time-Sharing Systems by Wiehle, Hans Rudiger
- First Edition Unix: Its Creation and Restoration by Toomey, Warren
- The Network Information Center and its Archives by Feinler, Elizabeth
- Promoting the Prosaic: The Case for Process-Control Computers by Aylen, Jonathan
There are also a few articles on the AEG-Telefunken TR 440 computer.
I find the prospect of alternate choices of OS other than Microsoft fascinating and refreshing. I would be glad if Unix was resurrected and given a new face. I think we need more options other than what MS is bringing to the public. I like to have choices.
However, it does seem that MS has finally gotten widows to work right with Win7. But what was wrong with XP in the first place?
Don't forget Linux too...
There's even some great video of me acting in one of the presentations.
