Home Consoles

Home computers were predecessors to the IBM PC, and were the first examples of hardware that allowed the user to either program software themselves, or make optimizations to how the hardware ran. The popularity of MS-DOS-operated IBM PCs severely curtailed the home computer market, effectively eliminating it in the 1990s with the introduction of Microsoft Windows.
