The legendary computer systems from 1975/1976: These machines all ran a version or variation of Digital Research CP/M, which was written by Gary Kildall († 11.July 1994).

Now we have 2015, 40 years after these machines were created, and I can run emulations of these machines on a small Apple Notebook
system running OS X, created by Steve Jobs († 5.October 2011).
Apple's OS X is a variation of UNIX, which was written by Ken Thompson and Dennis Ritchie († 12.October 2011).

I think this is a good representation of the progress made the last 40 years and I would like to thank the people who made it possible.
I grew up with these machines you created and the operating systems you wrote for them. Thanks for that, I owe you.
