Apple Lisa

On today’s show, we’re covering the Apple Lisa, Steve Jobs’ attempt at pushing the Graphic User Interface to the public.

From Wikipedia: “Contrary to common belief, it was not the first personal computer to offer a graphical user interface in a machine aimed at individual business users. Development of the Lisa began in 1978. The Lisa sold poorly, with only 100,000 units sold. In 1982, after Steve Jobs was forced out of the Lisa project, he joined the Macintosh project. The Macintosh is not a direct descendant of Lisa, although there are obvious similarities between the systems. The final revision, the Lisa 2/10, was modified and sold as the Macintosh XL.”

Are these two “facts” correct? Jeff & David discuss.
