In your opinion, what are the TOP 3 (or more) blunders in the history of microcomputers?


1) Xerox failing to develop and market the Alto as quickly as possible;

2) IBM creating the PC in such a hurry that it not only sucked, but in the end, instead of IBM-PC, it became MS/Intel-PC;

3) IBM's refusal to properly market OS/2, the last chance they had to kill MS and own the dominant OS for the PC after the end of the MS-DOS era;

4) Commodore's "self destruction".
