"I think you'll find that points pre-dated something as modern as Squad Leader. The old Skytrex micro armour rules for instance, WRG 1925-50 or some of Bruce Quarries efforts."

Point systems are older even than that… Chess pieces have had relative values assigned to them since at least the early 1800s…

There's a pretty lively thread on the merits of having a points system in rules. Actually it's worded to attract those that like them. I want to see how many gamers actually use them. How important are point systems in the rules that you play?
not at all

Never use them.

not that important

I do use them occasionally.

don't care

I don't care one way or the other.

yes, I find them handy

I usually game with armies built using points.

yes, absolutely

If there's no points system, I'm not playing.
