Apple released the Apple Network Server in 1996. Nearly a decade after having thrown down the gauntlet with IBM in the personal computer ads, such as the now infamous 1984 ad, Apple and IBM were nice and cozy and Apple had taken a number of lumps in the market. Since the desktop operating system wasn’t made with the type of threading required for increasingly large centralized workloads, they partnered with IBM to get AIX running on a Network Server 500. Must have been quite the shiner.

It’s been about a year since most workers and students started getting sent home from organizations to slow the spread of COVID. Some environments were well positioned and others needed a much larger lift. Actually, it seems like a lot of things needed to change. In this episode we’ll look at a few things that had to change and a few that didn’t, and the novel concept of the Technology Drivers Test.
