type of computers

by shiny_topadm In reply to type of computers

Hi, you might want to re-state your question, if you really want an answer. Is "ADM" a typo for "AMD" and is your question more along the lines of,"How many different companies manufacture a CPU that runs a 'Windows' operating system?" Just askingabout "computers" (with no qualifying adjectives) is almost too general. That could include industrial devices, automobile control systems (for engine management, etc.), gaming systems, all kinds of servers and mainframes, etc. Do you get my point?

There is only one structure in common use.
Von Neumann.
The others such from content addressable to quantum electron are all experimental.
In the VN structure I have worked on some weird ones from single bit, to the Octal (Base (that's 3 bits to a byte) VERDAN that used 27 bit words.
This question should be put to a computer museum website. A curator might know.
It is going to be a large number.
