Apple After yesterday's trip down memory lane with OS/2 2.1, I will today take you even further back. With the help of the recently released Apple Lisa emulator, ToastyTech (another invaluable tool for (G)UI fanatics such as myself) updated its set of screenshots from the Lisa Office System (version 3), the first commercially available graphical user interface for home use. "This Lisa emulator tries to give you the full experience of using an Apple Lisa. The backdrop is a photo of a Lisa that changes as the power light comes on and when you 'insert' a disk. It even plays the sound of the Lisa disk drive running as you access the disk. To start the emulator you must press the 'Power button' just as you would start a real Lisa." Read more for a few notes.

"I'd like to add postscript support, fonts, and some of the gadgeds coming with "Vista" and promoted as "new" or "revolutionary", such as clock, calendar, mail notification. And 3D ego shooters. :-) "

I'd like to mention that Apple had nothing to do with gadgets, Konfabulator existed long before apple came up with the Dashboard, and even the windows sidebar existed before that. Apple just stole the concept from Konfabulator, which at that time was a Mac only product, since then, they have moved to Windows
