Does anyone know who invented the symbol itself, or why they chose that particular image? Is it just an arbitrary emblem? — Preceding unsigned comment added by Derwos (talkcontribs) 13:12, 12 July 2011 (UTC)

Some notes[edit]

On personal computers,[NB 1] the reset button clears the memory

I'll have to check for actual IBM compatible PCs, but the C64 or the Amiga computer did not clear (erase) the RAM on reset.

Many newer computers have no separate button for resetting the computer, it is integrated with the power button.

No it isn't. In other words: citation needed. OK, in the following sentences it clarifies the claim a bit, but I maintain that there is no such "integration". The power button can be assigned any software action.
