re: Which computer era would have been the most exciting to take part in? VIEW POST


Its obviously the era when hacker culture was just starting to take off and Linux 1.0 was perhaps just released (circa 1991).

It was also the time when GNU and open source was starting to take off across the world, and firefox was also open sourced out of netscape around the same time. This was also the time described in the movie, Hackers. And a whole lot of other things like Java, mysql, PHP, Python, etc. were also born around this same time and Bill Gates was just on the brink of becoming a millionaire then! That time could probably be called the big bang of modern computing.
