176. the pesonal computing market (home retail market)...
terminology has been annexed by IBM PC clones. to say that quickly people just say pc. i lived around the time of apple pcs and ibm pcs, people have just adopted the slang of using the entire category of home retail computer processors as the name for all the ibm clones.

you do know the categories of processors right? granted some of them are out-of-date and/or wholly destroyed categories (personal computing market exploded in growth and power). i'm sure you've heard of mainframe, microprossesors, super computers, etc, right? personal computers is just the home end of this chain.

or was this a sarcastic joke and it went over my head...? an emoticon might've helped.
