Abstract

Arriving at the end of a threeyear semester, it's exam time at the trailing edge. Didn't the author mention that there would be a test Sixtysix true or false statements test your knowledge and understanding of the personal computer field at the beginning of 1992, and the extent to which your view of personal computing is congruent with the author's. The latter is significant because, if most of you see things entirely different, then Library Hi Tech is wasting its paper printing this column and the author is wasting his time writing it. Some of the material on this quiz comes from the last eleven Trailing Edge columns. Some does not. The quiz, and the commentary accompanying answers, are the author's way of summing up three years of personal computing before moving on to another cycle. The author also provides notes from PC literature received during OctoberDecember 1991. It's printer quarter, otherwise covering a wide range of topics. As usual, all the yearend awards and predictions are ignored.
