We are celebrating that the good old ZX Spectrum microcomputer becomes 40. It was first released in the United Kingdom on 23 April 1982 and was soon established as a mainstream product and a flagship for the British information technology industry. Most of the Generation-X guys working in the IT industry today can tell you how the love for computers started when a Commodore-64, ZX Spectrum, Amstrad, or any MSX computers available entered their homes. They all learned to code BASIC, and only the bravest tried Z-80 or 6502 assemblers. Some of them will go further and passionately explain how later they bought a new 16-bit Atari ST or Amiga, remarking how they tried to tame those beasts (and how they failed, of course!).
