I bought this from dvdplanet the other day (good deal: $15) and
watched it recently.
They seemed to skip the entire minicomputer/workstation phase and
jumped straight from mainframes to the personal computer.
What was interesting though is the collection of footage that they
used throughout. I spotted what looked like footage of an HP terminal
factory, manufacturing 2621's. On the shelves in the background were
2648 style cabinets. It was a brief clip, but I felt "cool" knowing
that I was one of the few people who would recognize the equipment!
