  • How Toronto invented the PC, then forgot about it - Spacing Toronto
    Gordon Ramer to write code for the MCM 70 More than a decade before MS DOS the text based operating system used on the first generation of IBM PCs interaction between human and computer was performed using a variety of languages one of which was called APL short for A Programming Language Before joining Kutt Systems Ramer was able to create a simplified version of APL that used less memory and was therefore practical for smaller machines with lower specifications He called it York APL after York University Computer Centre With electronic engineer José Laraya Kutt and Ramer produced the first functional version of the MCM 70 in Laraya s Kingston basement in 1972 The rudimentary machine worked with the Intel 8008 chip and was capable of making basic calculations On 11 November the company was renamed Micro Computer Machines Inc and the prototype presented to the shareholders They dubbed it the MCM 70 reflecting the new name of the company A portable version of the MCM 70 was shown at the Fifth Annual MCM Users Conference in Toronto in May 1973 It was heating up recalled Ramer to writer Zbigniew Stachniak in The MCM 70 Story The demo had to be interspersed with short talks to allow José Laraya to exchange the heat sensitive parts and then restart the system for the next segment of the demo It was a far cry from today s slickly produced Apple product launches but the presentation attracted the attention of IBM and Intel the company that supplied chips for the machine Intel didn t believe that this little chip they were producing could do this much Kutt recalled in Stachniak s book Intel co founders Robert Noyce and Gordon Moore particularly liked a horse racing game the MCM 70 could run on its one line display The MCM 70 went through several revisions before the final product was ready for its public unveiling A virtual memory function was added allowing data stored on cassette tapes to temporarily boost the performance of the machine and so was an on off switch controlled by the operating system For the first time users could power down the machines without flipping a switch or pressing a button An early MCM 70 demonstration unit Courtesy of York University Computer Museum Completed in 1974 the final production model comprised a keyboard one line plasma display and back up battery for use in the event of a power failure The system could be readied for use with the push of a single button and support a variety of external devices including a printer Following its official unveiling in Toronto the MCM 70 started shipping to customers late in 1974 Early successes were hard to come by however Sales didn t match investors predictions and Mers Kutt was forced out of a company in 1974 There were serious technical issues too the plastic case wasn t perfect the motor for the built in cassette reader was unreliable but it was
