Announcing Darkstar, a Xerox Star Emulator

viewpoint-final-ui.png


In the late 1970s Xerox attempted to commercialize the Xerox PARC's Alto and the "Office of the Future" by developing and releasing the relatively inexpensive Xerox Star workstation. Released in April of 1981, the Star featured a GUI, mouse, ethernet and a laser printer. As a follow up to the ContrAlto emulator, Living Computers is proud to announce their release of a Xerox Star Emulator called Darkstar.
