Semi-protected edit request on 26 April 2018Edit

In the Software section of the article, can you please remove the Operating systems header because it lists software other than operating systems? (talk) 13:37, 26 April 2018 (UTC)

  Done Removed. Was done by Ryanking16 with this edit. Looks like they forgot to "reaarange more [and] add sections in few days." ChamithN (talk) 17:16, 26 April 2018 (UTC)

More Display for PC at home... like page of bookEdit

Is there a normal PC (not "mobile") with more display (for Windows, Apple, Kindle, ecc) "to move to right and back left" like normal pages of a big book? — Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 06:40, 21 June 2018 (UTC)

Lead images purports to show computers from different eras, but none are from earlier than the late 80's at mostEdit

And there's earlier images within the article already to use.--occono (talk) 18:53, 23 June 2018 (UTC)

  Not done: Hi Jonnie jpt! Wikipedia would always be glad to have more volunteers, but unfortunately this article has been a frequent target of vandalism, so editing by newly registered users has been disabled. If you have a specific fact you'd like to add, write it down here in the format "change XXX to YYY" or "after the text ZZZ add new text WWW", reactivate this request, and we will be happy to make the change for you–just be sure to be specific, or otherwise we may not be able to understand your requested edit. If you would like the ability to edit this article yourself, please make at least six more edits and you'll be able to edit semi-protected articles like this one.

Is the history section too British-centric?Edit

The content of the History section of this article is very British-centric and might lead one to believe that most major advancements in digital computing occurred principally in the U.K. Even a cursory examination of the works of Brian Randell, an Englishman himself and probably the preeminent and best known historian of early digital computing, shows a more balanced approach to American accomplishments and advancements. I am not suggesting an edit specifically, but I am suggesting as part of clean-up of this article, a little more balanced approach in this section would improve completeness and quality.
