Late... creating hardware to support software the idea goes back to 1961, Bob Barton and the Burroughs B5000: http://www.computer.org/portal/web/csdl/doi/10.1109/AFIPS.1961.4 Burroughs, Xerox PARC, and Apple have been much more into the idea of creating computers as a tool for people's creativity. This is a subversive idea because IBM and the Microsoft believe in making computers to control people, i.e. business and office machines. That is why Microsoft are failing.
