Who doesn’t know what a PC is? Personal Computers are one of the most defining features of our time. Machines that are great for work, for fun and for studying. But what PC really is? The Wiki says it’s a “multi-purpose electronic computer whose size, capabilities and price make it feasible for individual use”. But it gets better: “Personal Computers are intended to be operated directly by an end-user, rather than by a computer expert or technician”. Computers were originally invented to “compute” and solve complex mathematical problems. Today, everything is different and their original purpose is actually the least important one. Instead, they are used for gathering data (internet), entertainment (video games, movies, music, etc) and work.
Since the early 1990s, Microsoft operating systems and Intel hardware have dominated the PC market. There are alternatives to Microsoft Windows operating system but they still occupy a minority share of the industry. These include Apple's iOS and free open-source operating systems (e.g. Linux and Chrome OS).Street Fighter, commonly known as SF (or Suto in Japan), is a fighting video game franchise created and published by Capcom. The second game in the series, Street Fighter II, is widely considered as the one which pioneered the one-on-one fighting genre. The franchise’s main feature is a large number of playable characters, each with a unique fighting style.
Street Fighter was immensely successful worldwide and is said to be Capcom's second best-selling franchise to date. It’s also a very old series as the first game was released back in 1987. The best-selling game in the franchise was (Of course!) Street Fighter II, which exceeded $1.5 billion in sales revenue in 1993 (today it would be over $2.65 billion).
Interesting fact: Street Fighter was ranked number 10 on the list of the best video game franchises of all time.
