20 November 14

This tie features "IBM-AT"-style computers, appropriate to recall Microsoft's release of "Windows 1.0" on this date in 1985. It was a despicable program, intended purely as a knock-off of Apple's first Macintosh operating system. But November 20 has a redeeming unofficial holiday celebration, "Name Your PC Day." What name do you shout (or mumble) when your computer misbehaves?
