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.

what the heck does that to do with what I said? MS has a strangle hold on the desktop market right now. It would be hard for anything to take over. The only one coming close is Apple right now. And their market share is peanuts.

If MS didn't exist, *some* other OS/company would have come around that would be huge right now. It was inevitable.

No, I don't think it was inevitable, IBM is integral to the story, but not MS. if IBM had of stayed out of the personal computer business, I think there would be a lot more types of computers out there
