GUIs From 1984 to the Present

fairytale Incomplete and Inaccurate (263 comments)

This represents maybe 1/100th of the timeline of the evolution of GUI's for desktop PC's. This person obviously never used anything more powerful than a Dell.

Some of the GUI's off the top of my head that were SIGNIFICANT advances during the 80s and 90s include:
* Tandy Deskmate (once the #1 computer seller in America)
* Apple IIgs interface (precursor to the Macintosh)
* Xerox
* OS/2
* Amiga
