The Mac turns 25. Damn.
« on: October 26, 2009, 12:12:34 PM »

Saw this in the store today, so I bought it. On page 42 of its first issue, Bill Gates explained why the Mac was a "classic" computer. There were also two articles on MultiPlan, Microsoft's predeccessor to Excel. I loved it and used it, but by 1986, could no longer afford it. (I still can't.) But I will give them credit for surviving. Apple's revenue is vastly defined by its gadgets and phones, not its computers in this century.
