  That's going to be a very subjective call. What criteria define
  The Intel-based 386 PC was out, Macintosh was out, Silicon Graphics
were building MIPS boxes.
  The IBM RT was falling on its nose in the business world, and my boss,
who was at TJ Watson then, says they were doing early development on the
RS/6000. As best he can remember, and from the dates on the 7012-320 I
have, they actually started shipping in 1990.
  From here, from my perspective of not being into electronics then at
all, it looks like every other garage was a computer company.
  Just get one of everything, and have fun!
