Before you ask, this *IS* a bug. Always make sure your pointers are normalized, kids!

Happy 30th Birthday, Peanut

Posted by Jim Leonard on March 23, 2014

While the announcement for the IBM PCjr was made in November 1983, it didn’t actually show up on store shelves until March of 1984.  So, I consider this week the official-unofficial 30th birthday of the IBM PCjr.

The Register agrees, and posted a very nice stripdown of the system, with sarcastic and humorous comments.  The comments section for that article also has some nice observations for those who would like a trip down memory lane.

Later this year I will record the full version of my PCjr talk that I was never able to fully give last year (floods, shortened timeslots, etc.) and I’ll break it up into parts and put it on youtube.  I’ll announce when that series is up.
