We know that computer is used for many things, to control many things, to do many jobs, as server, to control airplane traffic, and many things a computer can do. But I am curious about the MITS Altair 8800. As I read in many news or articles, that "computer" always said used by hobbyists. I have never read any article saying that that kind of computer used for special purpose, neither by a hobbyist nor by a company.
Imagine that one of the hobbyist used that Altair 8800 to do simple calculation such as "+, -, x, /", to control his/her room temperature, used for timer to turn on/off light at home, to water circulation of an aquarium, and so on. Then, what was the "biggest" or the greatest task ever performed by MITS Altair 8800?
