Timeflash

1977

Up to this moment there is no sight on standardization in the micro, mini, or larger machines. This makes it very difficult for programmers to develop the same program for different machines.
Every manufacturer used their own proprietary software. Especially the operation systems that would only run on their machines. The same happened with the hardware manufacturers. So this non standard made soft and hardware very expensive.
The development of the programming language C will offer a way out but will not be the final solution. However it is a fast language compact but difficult for most programmers to keep up with developments. Then in the 1990's comes Java, very promising but again not the final solution. Java is still slow because it works like an interpreter and eats a lot of memory.
