How can we make this happen? Check out this presentation to learn.

Now that you say about the 80s, one of the surprising characteristic of IBM PC is that the interconnects between the motherboard and other components are de-facto standards, and any manufacturer can produce any part (well, except for CPUs).
I find it hard to believe that IBM allowed this, yet somehow it did, and PCs were and still are very modular and standards-driven compared to your average electronic device.
