I was introduced to the XIX by a friend who was an engineer.
The XIX is an innovative and well-researched patent application that, although initially marketed as a system for storing and processing data in a database, was actually developed as a tool for computing data, rather than as a data storage system.
In a nutshell, the Xix has a single central computer that can store and process data and other types of information.
It was initially developed by IBM for the IBM PC.
In contrast, the first patent application for the XI, which is also known as a “supercomputer”, was created by the German company Erlang.
Both applications were filed in 1976.
Erlang is also the first company to be awarded the US patent 8,948,857 (1976 patent 8-948-857).
It is the first computer that IBM has designed and built itself.
Although the XIII was designed for IBM’s original PC, it is the XIV that will be the main computing platform for the first generation of personal computers.
This article explains how the XII came to be and why it is still so important today.
