... another thing about Cal and CS...

A year after I got my degree in Computer Science (1970), one Steve Wozniak enrolled. He later dropped out, and had a significantly larger impact on computing that I ever did... so much for the value of a degree. So yeah, BSD, and Cal arguably played a roll in the formative years of an Apple co-founder. Also INGRES, arguably the first complete implementation of a relational DBMS came from work by Cal professors M. Stonebraker and E. Wong. RISK and RAID have roots in Cal research. 7 ACM/Turing awards.
