The Controversy Behind the World's First Digital Computer

Recommended Posts

I knew about that back in the 1980's... When I bought Bit by Bit: An Illustrated History of Computers.


Neither the ABC or the ENIAC were a Computer in the Sense of Today's Computers,


The ABC was Binary, but a Fixed Program, the ENIAC was Programmable, but Decimal. ( Some might say the ABC was an Embedded System ;) )


As usual, history proves that usually One Person or Team doesn't come up with ALL the Best Ideas, but what we have today is the Best of the Best Ideas..
