Hyperventilating

IBM: Treasure Island Revisited

Dick

Passe` DEC Mentality

Since my start was with IBM in 1957, and with large scale 'corporate systems', as opposed to the DEC 'departmental systems' that Ken Olsen was espousing at that time. That is the difference today, as it was 40+ years ago, possibly, C. O'Reilly, overlooks the difference between departmental foresight and corporate foresight, in his evaluations. And his forecasted demise of IBM.

Just an aside,,,,,, Let's face it,,, today's 4+ Core Processors have a Multi-Giga times performance increase in the last 40+ years,,,, However, the basic challenges of complete systems analysis and detailed design, have not changed,, but they are better understood.

PS: DEC is a tiny bit of HPQ today.
