This is a charming story of how Yugoslavia bootstrapped its own PC industry – open source, assembled at home, 4kb memory – and established a proto-internet involving DJ transmissions and cassettes. You can see why Galaksijas pass hands for thousands of dollars these days, which of course just makes for more melancholia.
