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.

If it wasn't for Microsoft, we'd actually wouldn't have been condemned to Win 9x in the 90s because we would have had operating systems by Digital Research, headed by the late Gary Kildall, who made the very first operating system for the home computer, as well as the programming language PL/M, CP/M(which was more advanced than DOS at the time when IBM was deliberating between DR and MS, as well as that operating system that made history), and several other things as well that were overshadowed by Bill, but were pretty important.
