Default William Lowe, the 'father of the IBM PC,' dies at 72

For some reason the news went unnoticed.

From http://news.cnet.com/8301-10797_3-57...pc-dies-at-72/
After his proposal for a quick market entry via Atari was rejected, Lowe was given one year to design and produce a personal computer that would be market-ready.
