      I was doing a presentation on older computers and came across this great


      It's all good, but the last half is really telling about Jobs & PARC...in
      Jobs' own words no less...

      Having read the book "Dealer's of lightening" by Michael A. Hiltzik, I know
      there is more detail to the story about what Steve Jobs learned about the
      Xerox Alto. The commercial shown in this video was very superficial. Steve
      Jobs and his programs got very detailed explanations and look at code at
      Xerox PARC. The programmers were forced to show him and his programmers may
      secrets of the Alto. So it is no myth that he got lots of ideas and a look
      at a working GUI years before he created the Macintosh.
