This is the recovered Machine Room from 2005. Please don't expect wonders. The look and feel of this site is nine years
old, and so is its code. Some of the functionality has been recovered while the rest of
the site is modernised and restructured. Watch this space!
Ed Roberts started this company in the September 1974. He had to
borrow large sums of money to do it, but the results were
unbelievable: this guy sparked the Home Computer Boom with the famous
Altair 8800 computer (which, like most machines of the day, came in
kit form). Bill Gates and Paul Allen wrote the BASIC for this beast
and started a tiny little company called Micro Soft (they had a space
in between the words, back then).
