Computers and those professionals that maintain, troubleshoot, program, administer, network, and build them are central to most every industry. Advertised as the first 100% IBM PC-compatible computer, the Compaq Portable can run the same software as the IBM PC. With the success of the clone, Compaq recorded first-year sales of $111 million, the most ever by an American business in a single year. The success of the Portable inspired many other early IBM-compatible computers. Compaq licensed the MS-DOS operating system from Microsoft and legally reverse-engineered IBM’s BIOS software. Compaq’s success launched a market for IBM-compatible computers that by 1996 had achieved an 83-percent share of the personal computer market.
