ABSTRACT
<p>In the 1960s, customers either obtained software free from their hardware vendors or wrote their own, specialized software. The idea that packaged software might be an alternative to meet customers' requirements met with considerable market resistance. The Software History Center, dedicated to preserving the history of companies launched in this environment, presents this collection of reminiscences from 1960s' software entrepreneurs.</p>
