From the early humans counting systems to the abacus, the slide-rule, and then later calculators, the persistent creation of ever more complex tools with the aim to allow human beings to expand the power of their minds has never stopped.

edit Altair
The MITS Altair 8800 was designed around a new microprocessor, the Intel 8080, and debuted in 1975. Its announcement on the January 1975 issue of Popular Electronics magazine led the Albuquerque-based manufacturer to a four-month backlog attempting to fill orders. The Altair is considered the first home computer. Its only input was a series of front-panel switches. However, it had a motherboard with a bus, which allowed other companies to provide keyboards, tape readers and other devices to access the registers. A group of Harvard students wrote a BASIC interpreter for the MITS. These students Steve Ballmer, Paul Allen, and Bill Gates left school to focus on code development and not long afterward created MicroSoft.

edit Wiring and Raw Binary
Early work with analog and electromechanical computers did not involve programming languages the way we know them. Since early computers needed to be wired directly for each problem set, the process of setting plugs took the place of having a text-based distillation of an algorithm. As electromechanical machinery gave way to mercury delay lines and drum memory, it became possible to write directly to addresses in memory and provide instructions without rewiring. This typically meant writing what we would call "machine code". This often gets called "hex" today, as modern 32-bit and 64-bit microprocessor systems read binary data in 8 or 16 hexadecimal chunks per clock cycle. Writing code at the machine level is difficult: it requires that the programmer know the specific locations for registers in hardware and the instruction set for the processor. Reading machine code is often more difficult than writing it, thus tracking code changes is nearly impossible for a human.

edit Operating system 'wars'
When the PC was introduced, it needed an operating system. IBM approached a company named Digital Research, which was owned by Gary Kildall. IBM sought the use of Digital Research's CP/M, a popular operating system in earlier systems. (It was, in fact, the first operating system that wasn't hardware-specific.) IBM did not want to pay royalties, however, but sought a one time purchase, which included a rename. Digital Research refused, and IBM withdrew. They then approached Microsoft and Bill Gates, who purchased an existing operating system (Seattle Computer Company's 86-DOS) and renamed it MS-DOS. This name was later used on non-IBM models; Microsoft agreed to IBM's desire to use their own name, and the operating system was sold as PC-DOS on the PC. 86-DOS was modelled after CP/M, and Digital Research filed legal action for patent infringement. IBM settled by offering computer buyers a choice of either; however, CP/M-86 (as the PC version was named) cost almost $200 more than PC-DOS, and it did not sell well.

In 1980, IBM first approached Bill Gates and Microsoft, to discuss the state of home computers and Microsoft products. Gates gave IBM a few ideas on what would make a great home computer, among them to have Basic written into the ROM chip. Microsoft had already produced several versions of Basic for different computer system beginning with the Altair, so Gates was more than happy to write a version for IBM. As for an operating system (OS) for the new computers, since Microsoft had never written an operating system before, Gates had suggested that IBM investigate an OS called CP/M (Control Program for Microcomputers), written by Gary Kildall of Digital Research. Kindall had his Ph.D. in computers and had written the most successful operating system of the time, selling over 600,000 copies of CP/M, his OS set the standard at that time. IBM tried to contact Kildall for a meeting, executives met with Mrs. Kildall who refused to sign a non-disclosure agreement. IBM soon returned to Bill Gates and gave Microsoft the contract to write the new operating system, one that would eventually wipe Kildall's CP/M out of common use. The "Microsoft Disk Operating System" or MS-DOS was based on QDOS, the "Quick and Dirty Operating System" written by Tim Paterson of Seattle Computer Products, for their prototype Intel 8086 based computer.

  • history of the computer the way i see it.
  • I will present a short computer history timeline. I will not go into detail spec about those machine. In the history of computers there as been a lot of thing going on, it really started around 1939. To me the first computer as we know it, is the ENIAC Of course there has been HP, and IBM that as build super calculator in around 1939-1942. Even the Harvard Mark-1, to me they where more calculator then computer. In 1946 the public got its first glimpse of the ENIAC, a machine built by John Mauchly and J. Presper Eckert, this was to me the first machine capable of processing a program. It as the capability of 1,000 times on the speed of its contemporaries big calculator. Then they where :
  • Around 1941,42 The Zuse Z3 Computer 1942- The Atanasoff-Berry Computer from Iowa State College that really never work. Project Whirlwind start in 1943, it was a analog computer, but found it inaccurate and inflexible. About the same time ENIAC was started and was a Digital computer. 1946- ENIAC project was finish and also AVIDAC 1948- IBMДs SSEC, the first computer from IBM, and use the Technology: 20,000 relays, 12,500 vacuum tubes.

    History Of Computers
    In the past 50 years, the computer has had a profound impact on business and on society in general. But the history behind its making an evolution is very long. Let us have a look at the major milestones which led to present day computers. Blaise Pascal was the mastermind who built the first mechanical digital calculator called Pascaline in 1642. Pascaline could perform addition and subtraction on whole numbers. However, it was a big financial failure. In 1804, Frenchman Joseph Marie Jacquard built an automated punched-card machine to operate weaving looms. His invention showed that data could be coded on cards; the cards could be joined to create a series of instructions. Programmable instructions proved to be a concept of great importance for modern computers. In 1822, Charles Babbage designed the difference engine that had mechanical memory to store results. His design grew complex as revisions occurred to him. He then proposed a more elaborate computing machine, the analytical engine. For his contributions, Babbage earned the title of т€œFather of the Computerт€.
