It's funny though, I haven't read anyone saying Windows was the Greatest Achievement. He he
Don't put words in my mouth. It's not nice. I just said that they revolutionized the GUI and disk technolgy. And if you were informed, you'd see why the Mac will not become another Windows...

Just checking you were still there, It was only tongue in cheek.

I am assuming that Mac users don't see the move to Intel as the greatest achievement.

I am not a Mac user and I think it is a sorry day for competitiveness (that was a big word for this time in the morning),

The emergance of x86 architechture, which led to home computers.

Others that can be mentioned as well include the development of the floppy, the hard drive (as mentioned above), on-board math co-processors, and the PCI bus.

I agree, and also don't forget there is a physics processor coming out as well.

Relly, I'd have to say the greatest technological advancement is the Personal Computer.

And just as I was about to say "NO! The 6502 and family were what revolutionized the home computer market!" I realized that the 6502 is an 8086 clone...

The 6502, sounds 1337!!! What was it a Pentium 100mhz w/ 16MB RAM and 2MB Video Card? Oh and it must have ran on DOS or Windows 3.1 right?
