History of the graphical user interface


In the early 1990s, the television department where I worked had a real newsroom computer system where reporters and lead producers developed and produced news programs. System B typically used a couple of redundant machines and an edition with workstations fully connected to a PC. The servers ran the IBM OS/2 system, which ran on new Pentium processors clocked at 90 MHz. (Oh, that was fast!)

The workstations used 3,380,386 megahertz processors running MS-DOS. No – Hard drives are 3½-inch floppy disks only. The floppy disks booted the computers to run MS-DOS and then ran the bol file, which loaded the system department news exe file from a server program. All data, such as news and then stories, was stored on the server and connected to everything else via 10Base-T Ethernet running on a social media hub (this was before web switches).

Everything worked incredibly well… for example, one of the speakers from 23:00 to 23:00 had a cancellation problem.

Her workstation calledwhile the random automatic restart, she saved my wife’s lost work. We found no problems with the workstation, we replaced it. Not good. We replaced his keyboard. Still not good. (The computer didn’t change was the correct mouse; it was the MS-DOS mode character.)

We swapped network cables to design a different hub port, used a different homerun cable, ours and the organization even replaced their monitor. Of most transactions, we did it twice, but it all happened to you anyway!

Finally, one day she writes a very polite e-mail to the director of news, complaining that she lost a good hour of work the night before because Linda’s car was Noah running, and that she managed to stay for a long time. after midnight. “If this continues, I’m afraid I’ll have to ask for a brand new car.”

I got a call from the director of the news department and asked what was going on. I told your ex thatshe didn’t seem to realize that she had already given her two new cars. It doesn’t seem to be a hardware problem. We decided to send one of my engineers there, assuming he could figure out what the landing was. I should have done it much sooner, it took me less than five minutes to find the culprit.

She liked to sit and watch cross-legged while she wrote. As she sat down next to her, the Expert looked down and said, “As usual, you think you’re pushing the reset button with your toes in all your pointed heels?”

    The history of the graphical user interface, understood as relying on graphic symbols and their associated control device, shows the computer a period of five decades of incremental improvements, some of which are based on constant fundamental ideas. Several vendors have developed their own corporate window systems based onBased on rules that are independent but share common core elements that define the “window, world-famous wimp, menu, and pointing device” paradigm.

    Compared to previous systems, significant technological improvements and overall interaction improvements have been achieved with minor steps. Significant advances have been made in usage but the terminology, metaphors and actual organizational idioms are undoubtedly still in use. Desktop computers are often controlled by computer keyboards and/or mice, while laptop computers often now have a stylus or touch pad. exactly, just like smartphones and tablets have a screen. Influence field computers and control sticks didn’t seem to count.

    Early Research And Development

    Early dynamic radar display devices, such as location input devices used to manipulate computer command data, laid the foundation for later improvements to graphical interfaces. SomeEarly [2] cathode ray tube (CRT) projection screens used a backlit stylus as a reference device rather than a mouse.

    The concept of a multi-pane windowed application was introduced by real-time computer graphics display systems, mostly in the SAGE project and in Sutherland’s Ivan Sketchpad program.


    In the 1960s, Douglas Engelbart’s Augmentation of Human Intelligence project at SRI International’s Augmentation Intelligence Research Center in Menlo, California developed the Online System (NLS). This computer included a new mouse-driven window, and several cursor windows designed to work with hypertext. Engelbart has long been partly inspired by her, as suggested by the Memex Information Desk in 1945 on Bush Vannevar.

    One of his early studies was based on how young children learn. Thus, the style was based on children’s primitive hand-eye coordination, and not onCommand-defined languages, user-defined macrotypes of procedures, or automated data conversion, although adult professionals use them later.

    Engelbarts directly influenced the progress at PARC xerox. Several people moved from Xerox sri to PARC in the early 1970s.

It had a screen rendered as a bitmap, and it was also a computer that established the desktop and desk metaphor an aesthetic user interface (GUI) crafted and curated at PARC, in and out of XEROX offices, and across multiple departments for many years. Alto had a major influence on computer design in the late 1970s and early 1980s, including the PERQ Three Rivers, Apple Lisa and Macintosh, and early Sun workstations.
