ndulge us. It’s a mile­stone for a com­puter mag­a­zine to reach 20 years and still be go­ing strong. The years are lit­tered with one-time ri­vals who are no longer around.

Tak­ing stock of what PC Ad­vi­sor has be­come, and where it has come from, we’ve had great fun look­ing over all 20 years, laugh­ing at some of the pre­dic­tions we made, de­signs we used and head­lines utilised to en­tice read­ers.

Check out the dif­fer­ent styles of cov­ers, the way the sub­jects cov­ered changes and ex­pands, and the way in which some mes­sages re­main con­stant. What we want from per­sonal com­put­ing doesn’t re­ally change, even as the medium of de­liv­ery grows ever more so­phis­ti­cated.

Tech­nol­ogy has come a long way in the 20 years we’ve been on the news­stand, and PC Ad­vi­sor has come a long way with it. Far from the Win­dows-only book it once was, the mag­a­zine now re­flects the in­creas­ingly di­ver­gent way we all in­ter­act with per­son­al­com­put­ing de­vices, from smart­phones and tablets to desk­tops and lap­tops.

In that time we’ve mor­phed from be­ing a mag­a­zine only in print, to a pub­li­ca­tion with the UK’s most pop­u­lar tech­nol­ogy mag­a­zine web­site (pcad­vi­sor.co.uk), Europe’s most pop­u­lar online tech­nol­ogy fo­rums (pcad­vi­sor.co.uk/fo­rums), our own dig­i­tal mag­a­zines (tinyurl.com/6su6sdy), Face­book (face­book.com/pcad­vi­sor) and Twit­ter (twit­ter.com/pcad­vi­sor) publi­ca­tions, and mo­bile sites on An­droid and iOS.

There have never been more ways of en­joy­ing PC Ad­vi­sor, so join us as we flick through some of our favourite is­sues.
