What is a personal computer?
The letters "PC" stand for personal computer. The PC has been used to describe "IBM-compatible" computers in the past. This is a technical and habitual significance that stems from the earliest PCs and how the IBM and windows operating system dominated the market. The windows operating system using a Intel microprocessor was known for it's business compatibility and ease of use. Unlike it's main competitor Apple Macintosh that was known for its innovative user interface as well as it's graphic design. Mac's at this point in time were being used more for at home use rather than for business due to its difficulty to edit software and issues of compatibility. These are some of the reasons the IBM- compatible PC dominated the market.
