Charles Molnar, the so-called father of the minicomputer, died last weekend at his home in Sunnyvale, California. In 1962, Molnar was the chief engineer on Linc, the original minicomputer, better known as Digital's PDP-8. Work on Linc was inspired by Molnar's impatience with having to buy time on mainframes. He envisaged a machine that would cost around $25,000. A memorial service was held in Sunnyvale on Wednesday.
