Progression of Computers

Technology, specifically computers, have come a long way in the past 50 years. It is amazing to look at the difference of computers way back when this gadget was invented to todays' modern computers. I have here below pictures of old computer models that I took at the Living Computer Museum in Seattle Washington. This museum was just opened about on October 25, 2012 and is a brainchild of Paul Allen, the co-founder of Microsoft. It is open to the public with an entrance fee, showcasing the very first computers that scientists used and how it develops. 

The very old machine that they have in the museum is the minicomputer PDP 7 produced by Digital Equipment corporation. It's very interesting as a minicomputer but it is as big as a whole cubicle. The machine accordingly was introduced in 1965. The one in the museum was commissioned from the University of Oregon used by scientists and physicists. It is almost back in it's working condition. 

The museum really gave life to the old systems and machines. If you like technology and computers, this place is really very interesting. I am just sharing here one of the old Apple computer and progression of Windows computers.

 Apple Macintosh computer.

 Windows 1.0

Windows 3.0

Windows 7

Windows 8 - Microsoft Surface

These are only few of the computers being displayed in that museum. The good thing is you can try it out there including those that are very, very old machines, and even play games like the old Congo Bungo, Donkey Kong, and some Atari games. It is an interactive museum and very interesting one.

Oh I can remember my first official computer class in HS and did not like it at all. Oh dear! And I think that was the time I learned about the internet. As in logging in to the computer was no fun and it took a long time to figure things out. I think we used the Windows 1.0 before or something like that and we also used those colored floppy disks. hahahaha... those were the days. Look at how far the techonology has come. A lot of high-tech and definitely user-friendly. :) Technology is best when it works! :)
