This is a book about an ultimate monopoly from an individual who felt IBM should be taken out. It is also, seen from this perspective, an explanation about how mainframes not only dominated computers, but the companies that made them wanted them to be closed, not open, so the company could constantly bring out later versions and sell more and more. Not a pretty picture. ( )
