Interesting Fact:

The TRS-80 PC was introduced in 1977. It had only four kilobytes of memory and could not handle lowercase letters. It had only three error messages: "HOW" whenever the user tried to perform an illegal function, "WHAT" when a syntax error occurred, and "SORRY" when available memory ran out.
