Do we also want to support questions that are not about hardware or software, but about a company or person that was important in the history of computing?
For example one could ask stuff about the history of Microsoft, IBM, Apple, Linus Torvalds, Konrad Zuse, etc.
Of course we don't really want questions about people's personal life, but questions about their actions and impact on the history of computing should be on-topic.
We must make sure that this kind of questions does not get too opinion-based, as history can often be interpreted multiple ways.
What do you think? On or off topic?
