Description

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. 3M was a goal first proposed in the early 1980s by Raj Reddy and his colleagues at Carnegie Mellon University as a minimum specification for academic/technical workstations: at least a megabyte of memory, a megapixel display and a million instructions per second processing power. It was also often said that it should cost no more than a "megapenny." This was in contrast to the personal computers of that period, such as the IBM Personal Computer which might have 64KB memory, a 320 200 pixel display, and 30 kiloFLOPS floating point performance.show more
