If the PS/2 was AOL, then MCA had to be OS/2. Good technically, but not
widely adopted. Sort of like EISA.
I suspect there's not much life left in the "open up the box and swap a
card" idea, at least as far as personal computers go. Increasingly, I'm
seeing people who have NEVER been inside their systems to add or upgrade a
card. Numbers of expansion slots are decreasing (the system I'm writing
this on has a grand total of 3 PCI slots).
So, I guess if you want to be "up to date" on buses, you'd be looking at
USB or Firewire.
Although not PeeCee, there''s also PC/104, although very 90's, isn't much
different electrically from the good old ISA bus.
