This is a list of people who have made major practical breakthroughs in the development of the computer industry. If unlinked, these are placeholders until an article can be written. The summary should describe briefly the most famous thing the person did.

This list should include people who have invented a significantly new computer, operating system, or type of software, or significant business or licensing model. Let's keep this for the really great ones for now.
