Silicon Cowboys

Available on Netflix, Tubi TV
Launched in 1982 by three friends in a Houston diner, Compaq Computer set out to build a portable PC to take on IBM, the world's most powerful tech company. Many had tried cloning the industry leader's code, only to be trounced by IBM and its high-priced lawyers. "Silicon Cowboys" traces the rise, and eventual demise, of the unlikely upstart that would alter the future of computing and shape the world as it is known today.
