    Seymour  Cray
    The machine gave fame to Seymour Cray and Cray Research, being continued in various versions until the 90s.As technical features, the first version (Cray-1A) operated with 80 MHz vector processors, was a 64-bit system and weighed 5.5 tons, including the Freon cooling system; despite its large size, it only had 8 MB of Ram.
  • Vint Cerf

    Vint Cerf
    Cerf is the co-designer of the TCP/IP protocols and the architecture of the Internet. In December 1997, President Bill Clinton presented the U.S. National Medal of Technology to Cerf and his colleague, Robert E. Kahn, for founding and developing the Internet.
  • MITS

    MITS
    MITS was founded by Ed Roberts and Forrest M. Mims III, who served together in a laboratory of the United States Air Force, and Stan Cagle and Robert Zaller. The four set up their company in the Roberts garage to apply their knowledge in electronics in the field of model aircraft and, specifically, in the construction of small-scale rockets
  • Bill Gates y Paul Allen

    Allen went to the State University of Washington, although he left her at two years old to dedicate himself, along with Bill Gates, to writing commercial software for the new personal computers.
    They founded Microsoft (initially "Micro-Soft", the script was removed a year later) in Albuquerque, New Mexico, in 1975, and they started selling a BASIC language interpreter.

    The Apple II family of computers was the first series of mass-produced microcomputers made by Apple Computer between June 5, 1977 and the mid-1980s. The Apple II had an 8-bit architecture based on the 6502 processor. It was completely different from Apple's later Macintosh models.
    Its predecessor was the Apple I, a machine built by hand and sold to fans. It was never produced in large quantity, but it initiated many of the features that would make the Apple II a success.
  • IBM

    IBM
    IBM PC or IBM PC compatible is referred to as a type of computer similar to IBM PC, IBM Personal Computer XT and IBM Personal Computer / AT. Many of the first IBM PC compatibles use the same bus as the original IBM PCs and IBM ATs. The IBM AT compatible bus is later called ISA Bus by the manufacturers of compatible computers
  • Intel

    Intel
    The 8088 was the microprocessor used for IBM's first personal computer, the IBM PC, which came out in August 1981. You have to keep in mind that most of the hardware, from the early 80's, was 8 bits, and cheaper. The 16-bit hardware was almost non-existent in 1981 and very expensive
  • Microsoft

    Microsoft
    Sistema operativo MS-DOS is an operating system for x86-based personal computers mostly developed by Microsoft Collectively, MS-DOS, its rebranding as IBM PC DOS, and some operating systems attempting to be compatible with MS-DOS, are sometimes referred to as "DOS" (which is also the generic acronym for disk operating system)

    Lenguaje de programación: Basic is a programming language that was created for pedagogical purposes, it was the language used by the microcomputers of the 80s. It is still very well known today and they have many dialects very different from the original. Let's see some history of Basic. In the 1960s, computers had a high value and were used for specific tasks, they were a mono task.
  • Lisa de Apple

    Lisa de Apple
    The Apple Lisa computer was launched on January 19, 1983, and while the Cupertino company claimed that the name was an acronym for "Local Integrated System Architecture," people in Silicon Valley at the time claimed that it was due to the name of the first daughter of Steve Jobs.
    Although Apple Lisa is not the first computer with graphical interface since that honor has the Xerox Alto, this last one was not available in the market

    CD-Rom is a pre-pressed optical compact disc that contains data. Computers can read—but not write to or erase—CD-ROMs, i.e. it is a type of read-only memory.

    During the 1990s, CD-ROMs were popularly used to distribute software and data for computers and fourth generation video game consoles.
  • Creative Labs

    1ª tarjeta de sonido Sound Blaster
    The Sound Blaster family of sound cards has for many years been the de facto standard for audio from IBM-compatible PCs, before PC audio became common. The creator of Sound Blaster is a Singaporean company called Creative Technology, also known by the name of his satellite company in the United States, Creative Labs

    The World Wide Web, commonly known as the WWW and the Web, is an information space where documents and other web resources are identified by Uniform Resource Locators, which may be interlinked by hypertext, and are accessible via the Internet.The resources of the WWW may be accessed by users via a software application called a web browser.
  • Pentium

    Pentium
    1er Microprocesador Pentium
    Pentium is a brand used for a series of architecture-compatible microprocessors produced by Intel since 1993. In their form as of November 2011, Pentium processors are considered entry-level products that Intel rates as "two stars"meaning that they are above the low-end Atom and Celeron series, but below the faster Core i3, i5, i7, i9, and high-end Xeon series.

    Lenguajes de programación: C++ = C ++ was born in the eighties with the aim of using the paradigm of object-oriented programming. The objects give a special functionality by themselves, unlike the traditional structured programming or C. In C the only thing that is looked for is the processing of some data of entrance to obtain some of exit.
