For the next several years, it was the world's most popular PC — but it never got the respect it deserved. (I still wince when I hear 'Trash-80.') Over at TIME.com, I'm celebrating the anniversary with some reflections on the machine and why it was so underappreciated."
I have yet to see any problem, however complicated, which, when
you looked at it in the right way, did not become still more complicated.
