“Alan Kay, whose vision for a personal computer guided the Alto, recently gave an Alto computer to Y Combinator. Getting this system running again is a big effort but fortunately I’m working with a strong team, largely from the IBM 1401 restoration team. Marc Verdiell, Luca Severini, Ron, Carl Claunch, and I (Ken Shirriff) started on restoration”.
These amazing guys are restoring the famous Xerox Alto computer. This computer was created in 1970s and it has GUI, laser printer, mouse, ethernet. You could use office WYSIWYG applications and even send emails (if i got it right) with it.
