Before there were IBM-PCs, there were a interesting handful of brands with diverse operating systems and hardware. From simple cassette or cartridge programs that plugged in, to bigger systems with hard drives and multi-user operating systems. Generally these were started before the mid 1980s and this category is not for larger mainframe or mini-computers from IBM Burroughs, Sperry and the like.
