ムバラク政権をコンピュータ史に喩えると:How long Egypt's Mubarak has been in power, described in computer history terms @ZDNet

Anyway, Sadat was assassinated and Mubarak became President. The year before, I had been turning in my assignments on punch cards. Back then, we still used them in Fortran class. The Apple II was available for use in the Math Lab, and I was building a CP/M machine in my dorm room based on a relatively new Altair 8800.

Mubarak has been in office since the days of CP/M. He’s been in office since before MS-DOS 1.0 was released.

ともあれサダトは暗殺され、代わりにムバラクが大統領になった。その前の年、僕はパンチカードで課題を提出していた。当時はFortranのクラスでまだパンチカード使っていたのだ。Apple IIが使えるのは数学のラボぐらいで、僕は寮の部屋でCP/Mのマシンを組み立てていた。当時としては新しいアルテア8800で。

ムバラクはCP/Mの時代からずっと大統領だ。MS-DOS 1.0が出る前からずっと大統領なのだ。- How long Egypt's Mubarak has been in power, described in computer history terms | ZDNet
