jcr writes “CNET and the Huffington Post both report the death of Henry Edward Roberts, best known to all of us as the inventor of the Altair computer, at the age of 88 from pneumonia. As it happens, I never got to use an Altair, but I did meet Ed once, back in the mid-1980s. Since that time, I’ve never referred to the Altair bus as the ‘S100′ bus, since I agree with him that an inventor is entitled to name his invention.”
