Happy 30th Birthday, Mac!

About thirty years ago, I walked into a computer shop because I was beginning graduate school and I thought  a computer would help me with my work.

The salesman in the store excitedly sat me down in front of a Leading Edge computer–a Korean manufactured PC popular at that time. He started running me through DOS prompts and command line code.

I remember looking to him and saying as politely as I could, “Really? There has to be a better way!”

I got up, walked out of the store, and drove down the road to the store selling Apple Macintoshes.

I have never looked back.
