This engaging history covers modern computing from the development of the first
electronic digital computer through the dot-com crash. The author concentrates
on five key moments of transition: the transformation of the computer in the
late 1940s from a specialized scientific instrument to a commercial product; the
emergence of small systems in the late 1960s; the beginning of personal
computing in the 1970s; the spread of networking after 1985; and, in a chapter
written for this edition, the period 1995-2001. The new material focuses on the
Microsoft antitrust suit, the rise and fall of the dot-coms, and the advent of
open source software, particularly Linux.
