Coverdisk Archive – Personal Computer World

Posted on October 14th, 2016

Personal Computer World was the first British PC magazine running from 1978 to 2009.

It wasn’t one of the magazines that really appealed to me, it was more “IT Industry” focused and seemed to be about 50% ads (it was a BIG magazine). However, much like buying breakfast cereal for the free gift, I was persuaded to buy the odd issues for the cover floppy.

You can see more at the British Centre for Computing History.

Don’t forget to check out the other magazine coverdisk archives.
