ComputerNewsDaily: "The beige box that changed the world will celebrate its 20th birthday
Wednesday night.

The icing on the cake should read: You weren't first, but your impact
was revolutionary.

The original IBM PC was introduced on Aug. 12, 1981, and the two
companies that benefited the most from it - Intel and Microsoft - are
sponsoring a party with San Jose's Tech Museum of Innovation to
celebrate its success and reflect on its significance."
