IBM 1990: Back to the roots

»It's time for IBM to rediscover its roots. What catapulted IBM to greatness in the mid-1960s was its discovery and implementation in the System /360 of a single, scalable architecture offering binary compatibility across a family of processors. Not only was this IBM's supreme intellectual and business achievement - and it is extremely rare for a single achievement to be both - but i also broadly defined the strategies that all other successful computer suppliers have followed since.«
John Chisholm, Computerworld, October 8, 1990: "Get it together, IBM"
