This was announced on the LisaList. Pretty exciting if you’re a fan of the Apple Lisa.

Reading the Lisa review in Personal Computer World was one of those life changing things. I was lucky to be in the age window where it wasn't incomprehensible and my capacity for excitement wasn't too ablated by experience

This is amazing. Lisa was years ahead of other computers of its time and, in some aspects, ahead of our current ones. The stationary metaphor making applications essentially invisible and part of the system is a wonderful idea.

Awesome! Is there any way the original files (w/o conversions) might be available, for preservation, in case something went wrong w/ conversion process?

Wait, I thought LISA was a failure in term of profit. Can someone elaborate on its importance to the community?

It pioneered various UI concepts, such as the trash can.

There are a lot of systems that were a failure in terms of profit, but still quite important to the evolution of the field. $$ isn't everything.

First time I ever used a mouse. I spent 5 minutes just playing with the rubber band outline on the desktop. Shortly after that the salesman threw 12 year old me out of the posh showroom.

I guess it's good from preservation standpoint, but not usable for anything else. I would prefer Apple to be more open with their current products.
