Hi folks,

Regarding this thread:

>Xerox was certainly the inspiration behind both the Mac interface and
>Windows.

The most interesting discussion I've seen published on Xerox Parc, the
development of the Macintosh, and early Microsoft is in the book, "Steve
Jobs and the Next Big Thing" by Randall E. Stross.

The book is mainly about Jobs and Next, of course, but the first couple
of chapters give interesting insight into the birth of personal
computing and the windowing environment.
