What is Acorn?

 

 

For Wikipedia:

Acorn Computers Ltd. (later renamed Element 14 Ltd.) was a British computer company established in Cambridge , England, in 1978. The company produced a number of computers which were especially popular in the UK. These included the Acorn Electron, the BBC Micro, and the Acorn Archimedes. Acorn's BBC Micro computer dominated the UK educational computer market during the 1980s and early 1990s. Though the company was broken up into several independent operations in 1998, its legacy includes the development of RISC personal computers. Its RISC OS operating system continues to be developed (as two forks) by RISCOS Ltd and RISC OS Open. Some of Acorn's former subsidiaries live on today-notably ARM Holdings, which is globally dominant in the mobile phone  and PDA microprocessor  market.

Due to its innovative designs and the future success of many of its former employees, Acorn is sometimes known as the "British Apple".

For me:

Was the real genius in computer making!
