Modern Marvels With the introduction of the original Macintosh in 1984, the Amiga in 1985 and the original NeXT Cube in 1988, the command-line interface began to fall out of favor. This was driven home with the introduction in 1990 of Windows 3.0, which would become tremendously popular, the first version of Windows to do so. Unlike the 70's and 80's where the focus was on the hardware and actually making the computers able to do things which were useful, the 90's focused more on the user interface and the hardware had to play catch-up. No longer was software written to the lowest commonly used system. Especially in the area of games, the software was written to take advantage of every bit of hardware that was available. Moreso than ever before, this caused a percieved need to constantly upgrade both hardware and software. This page is for those systems made after 1990, systems like the Power Macintosh 6100, which broke ground with a totally new processor family designed jointly by Motorolla, Apple and IBM.
