When Windows 95 was released, many personal computers by now were cheaper than the Mac, so sales at Apple were slowing down. So much that Apple was going bankrupt by 1997. But the following year, in 1998, that all changed. Apple just released the iMac, the best-selling Mac, mainly because of its color scheme.

Can you do the history of Dell. Why don't people buy Dell as much in 2018 compared to the early 2000s (and anything before 2014)?

It's worth noting that Gates and Allen didn't own or have access to an Altair 8800 when they wrote Altair BASIC. Allen wrote an emulator for the machine for them to develop their software on and the first time it was run on native hardware was at Altair headquarters when they were pitching the product to Altair. Pretty damn impressive.

Make a video how bad Windows Vista was!
Exelius (5 months ago)
-The Altair wasn't a PC, it was a Microcomputer -Atari BASIC wasn't a version of MS BASIC -CP/M didn't evolve into DOS, QDOS was based on CP/M interface -Windows Xp was hated on lauch because it was slow, buggy and resource hungry.
Abdulaziz Alserhani (5 months ago)
What!, although Windows XP was still considered faster than Windows Vista in the 2000s, you see, Windows XP isn't a 9x system, Windows XP actually uses an NT-based kernel, so maybe?

My first computer was the 2nd gen Apple, Apple ][+. It was the first Apple with Applesoft, written by Bill Gates, which had extensions for using Disk ][ drives. I also bought a card with the (Integer) Basic written by the Woz since then I could share programs with my friend's dad who had a 1st gen Apple. I started out with a whopping 32K of ram, eventually getting up to 48K, then buying the Microsoft 16K for a total of 64. I purchased it in late 1979 and other than my friend's dad had never seen a small pc anywhere. It's been a long, wonderful journey and has turned out to be a hobby where everything costs less and less every year. That 1st computer with the extras cost me around $2000, ran through a CPI calculator is around $6500 today. I have several RaspberryPi's for fooling around, the most expensive cost me $35 and would beat out any super computer around in 1979.

Guys, seriously, which VPN do you really recommend, TunnelBear or PrivateInternetAccess? Or which one is the one you use? Why don't you do an episode explaining the differences between different VPN services and test them (without advertising them, so, a fair a true test of service)

You skiped some things, for example when Microsoft copied Apple or when Xbox copied Sega Dreamcast , but ok... :-(
Theironsword (1 year ago)
Mistake Edition actually was intended to be a to market as fast as possible OS, with the only reason it even came out to hold over people until a better Windows could be developed.

WinME was the best 9x I ever had, minus lesser DO$ support. It ran perfectly for us and many others.

I NEVER had any issues with Windows ME. You had to use good hardware. Any crap, and you were screwed.
carls (1 year ago)
Hi Guys, im sorry but i never had a problem with WinME. And DOS was not developed by Microsoft. It was bought from California Software Company. Watch the movie "the silicon valley story". Greetings, Carls

1:57 No. The first WYSIWYG word processor was Bravo. A program made for the Xerox Alto in 1974.

How about the history of security on PC's. Architecture might bore some people, but how people gain access to your computer, now and in the past. Might help people understand a little more. Thanks for all your hard work.

5:49 -A better word would be "Techmovie" because Microsoft has its reach in almost everything related to technology today albeit not so famously in some of them.

Technically the sega dreamcast had an ethernet jack before the xbox
Supremax67 (1 year ago)
The issue with Windows ME was the lack of driver support, but that OS had insanely fast start times. I had Windows ME and it was freaking awesome. The industry back then however didn't give a f*ck about the support, so ME took a back seat. In all my years of using OSes, Windows ME was still the best of its time.

I understand why you omit Microsoft Bob, but OS/2, Windows NT (4 in particular) and Windows 2000 were significant milestones.

if they did not care as much about activation then maybe the small amount of people that did take the time to use linux and mac os would just use windows, kinda like the win rar situation

Bill Gates is a genius in the same way Ford was. He had the business acumen and drive to create the largest software company, prior to Google, on the planet.
