    Apple Computer launches the Macintosh. Computers; Apple introduces the Macintosh with a television commercial during the Super Bowl, which plays on the theme of totalitarianism in George Orwell´s book The ad featured the destruction of “Big Brother” – a veiled reference to IBM -- through the power of personal computing found in a Macintosh. American computer programmer Timothy Paterson, a developer for Seattle Computer Products, wrote the original operating system for the Intel Corporation’s microprocessor in , initially calling it QDOS (Quick and Dirty Operating System), which was soon renamed DOS. A year later, fledgling company Microsoft purchased exclusive rights to sell the system, renamed MS-DOS, to IBM for.

    IBM's brand recognition, along with a massive marketing campaign, ignites the fast growth of the personal computer market with the announcement of its own personal computer (PC). The first IBM PC, formally known as the IBM Model , was based on a MHz Intel microprocessor and used Microsoft´s MS-DOS operating system. IBM decided in to market a low-cost single-user computer as quickly as possible. On 12 August , the first IBM PC went on sale. There were three operating systems (OS) available for it. The least expensive and most popular was PC DOS made by a crucial concession, IBM's agreement allowed Microsoft to sell its own version, MS-DOS, for non-IBM computers.

IBM had been observing the growing personal computer market for some time.

The IBM Personal Computer, commonly known as the IBM PC, is the original version of the IBM PC compatible computer design. It is IBM model number and was introduced on Aug It was created by a team of engineers and designers directed by Don Estridge in Boca Raton, Florida.

The generic term "personal computer" ("PC") was in use years beforeapplied as early as to CPU: Intel @ MHz. This book tells the story of how the original IBM Personal Computer (Model ) was conceived, developed, and brought to market during the year to The further development of the product line (PC-XT, PCjr, PC-AT) is also by: The IBM Personal Computer AT, more commonly known as the IBM AT and also sometimes called the PC AT or PC/AT, was IBM's second-generation PC, designed around the 6 MHz Intel microprocessor and released in as System Unit The name AT stood for "Advanced Technology," and was chosen because the AT offered various technologies that were then new in personal computers Type: Personal Computer.

International Business Machines continued to publish their classic line of technology documentation until the release of PC-DOS in What are some of the other operating systems these manuals cover.

As well as the various versions of DOS, IBM partnered with Microsoft to bring Xenix to their Personal Computer line. At the same time, IBM released its next generation of personal computers, the IBM Personal System/2 (PS/2).

PC DOSreleased with the PS/2 line, added support for high density 3½-inch MB floppy disk drives, which IBM introduced in its based and higher PS/2 per: IBM and Microsoft.

IBM first approached Microsoft about its upcoming IBM Personal Computer (IBM PC) in July On Augafter negotiations with Digital Research failed, IBM awarded a contract to Microsoft to provide a version of the CP/M operating system, which was set to be used in the IBM PC.

The Personal System/2 or PS/2 is IBM's third generation of personal ed init officially replaced the IBM PC, XT, AT, and PC Convertible in IBM's lineup. Many of the PS/2's innovations, such as the UART (serial port), KB inch floppy disk format, Model M keyboard layout, pin SIMMs, the PS/2 keyboard and mouse ports, and the VGA video standard.

According to IBM Research: “Software development refers to a set of computer science activities dedicated to the process of creating, designing, deploying and supporting software.”. Software itself is the set of instructions or programs that tell a computer what to do.

It is independent of hardware and makes computers programmable. Edition Notes Bibliography: p. Cover title: Using the IBM PC. Includes index. Series CBS computer books Other Titles Using the I.B.M.

As we learned in chapter 1, almost all businesses used IBM mainframe computers back in the s and s. These same businesses shied away from personal computers until IBM released the PC in When executives had to make a decision about purchasing personal computers for their employees, they would choose the safe route and purchase IBM.

A number of personal computers hit the market, including Scelbi & Mark -8 Altair, IBMRadio Shack's T RS — affectionately known as the "Trash 80" — and the Commodore PET. Development and manufacturing responsibility for the IBM System computer is transferred from IBM Instruments, Inc., a wholly-owned subsidiary, to IBM Engineering Systems Products, an independent business unit.

IBM Archives IBM’s specialty was mainframe computers—i.e., expensive medium- to large-scale computers that could process numerical data at great speeds.

The Model was succeeded by the and before IBM introduced what we know as the IBM Personal Computer (Model ). Although the series preceded the IBM PC, the older systems and. Organized into three parts encompassing 12 chapters, this book begins with an overview of the evolution of personal computing and includes detailed case studies on two of the most essential personal computers for the s, namely, the IBM Personal Computer and Apple's Macintosh.

IBM’s efforts to develop the IBM PC began when Don Estridge took control of the IBM Entry Level Systems in with the goal of developing a low-cost personal computer to compete against increasingly popular offerings from the likes of Apple Computer, Commodore International, and other perceived IBM competitors.
