Oscar Toledo Esteva in the decade of the 70's, designer of the computers G1 to G11.
Oscar Toledo Esteva is born April 21 of 1946 in Sidar, Oaxaca, in a station of workers of the railroad, near Juchitan City. First-born of Jose Toledo Orozco and Cecilia Esteva Martinez, inhabited a horizontal condominium for workers of the rail of railroads, the Zapotec is the language of the isthmus region, which was his maternal language.
In Sidar there was not school, his great-grandmother Mrs. Severa Luis Lopez (Na Severa Teo) that resided in Juchitan took him to live with her, she was the most famous cook and confectioner of the region. In Juchitan he studied the first school year until the third degree in the School Adolfo C. Gurrion of the fifth section, later the four to the sixth degree in the Central School of Juchitan.
When he studied the third school degree, in the afternoons, the students practiced manual works making toys with manual coping saws, using wood or fiber. Later he continued his work at home, builting tanguyú (toys of clay) that later cooked to obtain bigger hardness.
Since young it contracted the liking for the electronics, at 10 years-old it had already manufactured, with a box of shoes, some waste batteries, a focus of a hand lantern and a lens, a projector of transparencies and with it offered functions for his friends.
Oscar Toledo Esteva in 1970.
Master of the electronic craft, one of the most astonishing qualities of Oscar Toledo is to be completely autodidact. After abandoning the primary school in Juchitan, Oaxaca, he arrived to Mexico City in 1959, his previous knowledge of electronic and radio repair earned him quickly a good reputation in the repair shops that disputed him for being faithful to the work.
In 1969 while he repaired televisions and audio amplifiers, he already built digital logic modules to get ready for the previous phase in the design of a versatile computer and economic for productive tasks, capable of manage any peripheral.
In 1979 he finished his first computer, was an imperfect machine, but it was sufficiently good to allow the development of the twelve generation computer fifth version (G12V5), able to compete with the current commercial computers.
While the computer equipments to those that we are accustomed are developed in big companies, with engineers' staff granted a doctorate in the most prestigious institutions, Oscar Toledo Esteva works quietly and self-employed, supported, of course, by his family and with an indefatigable spirit of superation.
The computer generation 12 version 5 is the proof of the effort, the ethic and the devotion of a man and his family that has forged a way based on the traditional juchiteca's principles. A man that, on following his dreams, has demostrated that the true science must be at the service of all the humankind.
