I've had the privilege of having a front row seat in watching the evolution of technology in general and especially in computers and operating systems. My first experience with computers was as a young student registering at my university. That was 1978. I was shocked to see that immense machine for the first time, it was a Cyber mainframe, used for processing student records and faculty payroll. That Cyber mainframe was replaced by a DEC PDP/11-40 and later I saw the arrival of a DEC VAX 11/780 which had the latest technologies. As the VAX came through the front door, almost at the same time its successor, a set of brand new IBM XT personal computers, came through the back door and the rest is history.
