@djsundog (OLPC is what you get if you leave a project like "giving underprivileged children in developing countries computers for 'better education'" in the hands of the kind of engineers more interested in developing HW and libre SW than they are any form of plan to do with those computers, like a curriculum)

Probably the first video I've seen on YouTube of Sun/Xerox/AT&T's old Open Look interface, circa 1990-1991. I shot this myself from my SPARCstation IPX. Very polished for the time, really.

Dooping around DEC ALL-IN-1. Groupware for the 1980s! It's Very Business. Running on VMS 7.3 on a MicroVAX 3100-40 with a VT420 terminal


@rey @techfury @coryw its confidential so I leaked it. i'm the ed snowden of VAX office automation


ALL-IN-1, for maximum overbusiness on your DEC VT100, courtesy of @techfury

it's cool to see all this wacky stuff, but its conventions are.... weird. "GOLD KEY" is PF0/Num Lock. you kinda see why people wanted pull-down menus

also cool: VT100 fullwidth, enterprise ASCII art, menus

more ALL-IN-1 stuff

indeed, nothing does suck like a vax

<@techfury> @calvin: you steal the swayzie express so we can send itaniums across the border


@amdt allegedly (I don't know for certain, @techfury can correct me) Fujitsu and/or NEC made domestic ones (or comparable machines that happened to run Lisp) - see fifth generation computing

that said, SMBX did have a presence in Japan
