Title: Computer Architecture's Changing Role in Rebooting Computing

Abstract

In this paper, Windows 95 started the Wintel era, in which Microsoft Windows running on Intel x86 microprocessors dominated the computer industry and changed the world. Retaining the x86 instruction set across many generations let users buy new and more capable microprocessors without having to buy software to work with new architectures.
