25th Aniversary of Personal Computer (PC)

Who is PC? Thats the question I was asked by couple of people when I had written "25th Aniversary of PC" on my MSN messenger window.

Anyways...25 years ago on this date, IBM launched a Personal Computer (PC) - the IBM 5150. The PC was priced at $1565 with only 16k memory. "The machine was developed by a team of 12 engineers, led by Don Estridge, who was also known as father of the IBM PC."

Over the years a lot has changed and have brought a revolution in the field of computing. IBM's PC division is now owned by a Chinese company Lenovo.

Apparently nothing was mentioned on IBM.com.
