Graphics, User Interfaces Sometimes, you wake up in the morning, check your RSS feeds, and you know you just hit the jackpot. From the AT&T archives comes a video and description of Blit, a UNIX graphical user interface from 1982, on a 800x1024 portrait display. It employs a three button mouse, right-click context menus, multiple windows, and lots, lots more. It was developed at Bell Labs, and is yet another case that illustrates how the technology industry doesn't work in a vacuum.

NeXT rediscover UNIX in 1988.


I'm confused as to whether that (above) is a "bad thing". But if it is, let me throw you a curve ball: both iOS and Mac OS X are based on the original NeXTSTeP OS and therefore... based on UNIX.
