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.

Long, long ago hard drives were rather large expensive things and a customer crashed without a backup. I took it to a drive repair and data recovery shop down the road and dropped it off, when I picked it up I had to go around the back to delivery, looked in a window and there it was, this enourmous clean room cut into aisle after aisle of Apple Lisa workstations manned by people in what appeared to be some sort of white space suits, very surreal.
