10 Years of the iMac

Ten years ago (OK, May 6, 1998) the iMac was introduced. I'd argue that this is the product that really brought Apple back. Granted, they missed the target on a couple of things, mostly the round mouse and the lack of CD burning. Dropping ADB and serial stuff for USB was a huge step forward and a bit risky.

I've still got my rev B version, which makes it just over 9 years old.
