A Question for EverybodyHave you ever heard thebrand war between Mac and PC?
Introduction Everything started with the idea of Douglas Engelbart, an American engineer working at the Stanford Research Institute. The idea of a mouse driven graphical user interface back in the 1960s. Researchers at Xerox Corporation were inspired by the idea and made Xerox Star 8010 Document Processor in 1981 for $17,000. It did not become commercial successful.
Introduction In 1981, IBM computers was also released but it is just a huge hit on business industries and not on home markets. As a result, IBM bought the Operating System from Microsoft which is “MSDOS” and installed it in all of their hardwares. Other manufacturers were then able to copy the IBM hardware design and ship their Clones with copies of MSDOS purchased directly from Microsoft.
Introduction As a result, even without IBMs approval or participation, their PC became an open standard with virtually unstoppable economies of scale. By 1990 IBM Compatible PCs captured an 80% market share, by 2000 97%. Thishas then led Microsoft stay ahead of the competition against Mac.
Introduction Although IBM PCs running MSDOS dominated the market, Apple will be forever remembered as the innovative company behind the first mass market GUI based computer. Steve Jobs actually visited Xerox in 1971 and saw the demonstration of Xerox Star in its development stage. He then saw a potential and work on it. By the time Xerox released the Xerox Star 8010 in 1981, Apple were already hard at work on their own GUI based computer.
Introduction In 1983 Apple finally released their first GUI based computer. Unfortunately the "Lisa" computer was an expensive machine targeted at business and academia which proved to be a commercial failure. A year later (1984) Apple launched their successful "Macintosh" computer for consumers. Tillthen, Macintosh battled out with Windows by targeting a niche market that would patronize Mac.
