If you're at all interested in computers, this graphic is fascinating.
If you've been involved with computers as long as I have, it's a little disconcerting to see the computers I first worked with so close to the beginning of the chart. Yikes!
In my case (and I suspect many others as well), that's not entirely due to my age. I first worked with computers in the U.S. Navy, and some of the systems I worked with were museum-fodder while I was working on them (and some of those stayed in service for a decade or more after I left!).
Nonetheless...there's a fair number of machines in the top quarter of that chart that I know from hands-on experience. What a short revolution the computer revolution has been!
