POPOUT APPLE COMPATIBILITY
In the early 1980s, the Apple label was introduced mainly as a Game-Machine with 'BASIC', its first programmable language. IBM (International Business Machines) was leading in Business Applications, offering business solutions to American Corporations. Innovation from third party developers had created multiple languages, which operated differently. As a result, an out-cry for compatibility followed. Neither Apple nor IBM conceded to each other. The race to standardize was rejected and the public was left to choose. The results here are apparent.
