Enterprise Software History

I've visited the Computer History Museum in Mountain View three times now.  I love reading Steven Levy's dramatic biographies of the unsung heroes of technology.  Heck, I even took an independent study class at Texas A&M on the History of Mathematics :-)  Geek: yes.

Anyway, I recently came across a nice little series of articles about the history of software, specifically:

Linux got a mention, but no sign of Ubuntu yet, in the annals of Software History.  Best start working harder ;-)
