I had an attempt.. which got stumbled on lack of whatever.. it had good intentions.. I guess. I left the try beneath..
It started from this: (even more details then “Pirates of Silicon Valley” with add-ons from people behind the curtain)
Microsoft, Apple and Xerox – The History of the Graphical User Interface
I’ve started my PC experience with a 386 computer, with 1Mb of RAM a quarter of a Mb video on board, running Ms DOS and Windows 3.1
That computer was meant for my my brother who actually knew something about it and was starting high-school in a computer science oriented class. I wasn’t yet in my teens and knew pretty much no more English than okay, are you ok?, no, good or some language similarities like start, stop, button, install and maybe others.
Maybe I had heard about it or saw something on tv which at that time i have no idea how much I had understood, but there it was and so I’ve started to see and understand the hardware and software theory thing, the operating system thing. I’ve started to get into settings, installing, personalizing and strangely enough only later editing and later on starting to ponder about the creating part.
One thought on “i and the UI history”
I hope this is the first in a series :-)
