Computer Nostalgia

Walking down Railside Ave in Henderson the other day and saw this old 8-bit Commodore 64 system with paddles, joystick and floppy drive for sale in the secondhand shop.


Overcome with nostalgia (in a very geeky kind of way), I’ve put together a graphical timeline of various computer systems I’ve spent a lot of time with. I’ve missed a few out – like the Sun workstations and the NeXT systems at various universities, various Linux and OS/2 systems, and a number of other systems like the old BBC Model B for playing Elite, but these are the ones that I’ve worked with day in and day out. The graphics are below and the PDF is here at: Stephen’s Computers (PDF).
