1987 – Turbo C Programming LanguageA screenshot of Turbo C Version 1.0

In the United States, version 1.0 of the Turbo C programming language is released. The new language offers the first integrated edit-compile-run development environment for the C programming language for IBM-compatible personal computers. Like many other of Borland products at the time, the software was actually bought from another company and branded with the “Turbo” name. It was originally developed by Bob Jervis who called the product  “Wizard C.” It runs on just 384KB of memory, and it is capable of inline assembly with full access to C symbolic names and structures.

Hendrik Breitkreuz (also known as “Merkur”) starts the eMule project. Breitkreuz  is dissatisfied with the original eDonkey2000 client. Over time, more developers will join the effort with the source being first released to the public at version 0.02 and published on SourceForge under a GNU General Public License on July 6, 2002.
