Who made the Xerox Alto?
The Xerox Alto was made by Xerox Corporation at its Palo Alto Research Center in Palo Alto, California.
The Xerox Alto was a machine, not something to be published. It was built and used, but it was a test device and was not made available to the commercial market.
Xerox Alto was created in 1973.
It's called the Xerox Alto
The Xerox Alto was developed in 1973 at the Xerox Palo Alto Research Center (PARC) in California . The name "Alto" came from the location, Palo Alto. The Alto was a development machine and was not marketed. However, machines based upon the Alto were eventually offered in the marketplace.
The Xerox Alto was an experimental form of what would now be called a "networked desktop computer." It was developed in the Xerox Palo Alto Research Center before the IMB PC or Apple I hit the market. Xerox deployed the Alto in many of its manufacturing and research locations, as well as within Ginn and Company, a book publisher that was then a Xerox subsidiary. However, the Alto was never offered in the commercial market… Read More
Xerox Palo Alto
Yes, Xerox PARC is located in the US. It is on a hillside in Palo Alto, California. PARC stands for Palo Alto Research Center.
It was invented in 1973
The Xerox Alto.
Windows was cloned from Mac OS which was cloned from the Xerox Alto. The invention of those interfaces should be credited to Xerox PARC on their Alto. All later are derivatives.
The first developed portable computer was the Xerox NoteTaker, developed at Xerox PARC (Palo Alto Research Center), in 1976. The first mass-produced portable computer was the Osborne 1, in 1981.
Xerox in the Alto.
It happened on Xerox on the Alto
the GUI and the mouse came at the same time, in the Xerox Alto, then the Xerox Star, then the Apple Lisa, then the Macintosh.
Palo Alto Research Center (Xerox PARC)
It was Xerox in 1970s with the Xerox Alto. The Alto actually had a GUI. Until Apple had created the Macintosh, there really was no GUI. In 1985, Microsoft created a crude GUI, Windows 1, which was only just an enhanced DOS Shell.
I believe it was the Xerox ALTO, a prototype technology demonstrator computer.
Probably the Xerox one for their experimental prototype Alto computer workstation. That inspired Jobs and Wozniac of Apple to make the one on the Lisa, then the Macintosh.
After Mac OS. Mac OS was based on the earlier Xerox Alto system.
The senior managment of Xerox Corporation did not recognize the value of what they had, and management at their Palo Alto Research Center knew that Xerox did not know how to develop it, even if they recognized its value. So they let Steven Jobs see it.
What is the name of the Xerox lab where many of the computer and networking technologies were developed over 30 years ago?
The Xerox Palo Alto Research Center, or Xerox PARC, is the lab where many of the seminal computer and networking technologies were developed over the last 30 years.
Graphical User Interfaces were first invented by Xerox for their Alto computer. Everyone else copied.
The first computer with a Graphical User Interface and mouse was the Xerox Alto in the late 1970s.
No. Xerox was. Their Alto computer inspired Apple and other companies.
Whether Apple stole the GUI and related metaphors from Xerox Corporation or merely used ideas they were shown is a matter of interpretation, and perhaps a matter for a court decision. See the Wikipedia article on the suit between Microsoft and Apple on this matter, in which Xerox tried, unsuccessfully, to participate.
Apple. Actually it was Xerox on their Alto computer, Apple copied them on their Lisa computer.
The company history of Apple Inc says that a man called Steve Jobs was so impressed with technology shown by Xerox Palo Alto Research Park ( or Xerox PARC as it later became known as) that Steve founded a computer company to let the rest of the world know about this Windows, Icon, Pull Down, (when WIMPS ruled the desktop), Menu system Xerox PARC did have working. Xerox PARC did not protect that innovation so… Read More
The Xerox Alto was the first computer to use a Graphical User Interface (GUI)
The term "Xerox copy" is often incorrectly used to mean the same thing as "photocopy." But "Xerox" is a proper noun and a trademark for the Xerox Corporation so "Xerox copy" actually means a copy made on a copier that carries the Xerox brand. The word "photocopy" means any copy that has been made using a photographic process and includes copies made on Xerox machines, and other copiers.
Xerox Corporation has its corporate headquarters in the US; in Connecticut. Some machines sold or rented by Xerox in the US are made in the US and others are made in other countries.
The correct way to use Xerox in a sentence is to use it to refer to a machine made by the Xerox corporation, or to the Corporation itself, for example: They rented a new Xerox machine from Xerox Corporation.
The alto orn is made of keratin.
Xerox is a made-up word derived from the technical term xerography. It has no meaning other than as a trademark of the Xerox Corporation.
Not at all. The first graphical operating system was on the Xerox Alto workstation.
The Xerox Corporation developed and brought to market the first xerographic (plain paper) copier. This revolutionized the business office environment. The Xerox Corporation also invented the Ethernet computer networking system and the graphical user interface, and was the first to successfully apply the computer mouse on a large scale. Many other critical elements of personal computers and computer networking were first created at the Xerox Palo Alto Research Center, although largely ignored by Xerox Corporation… Read More
The word "xerox" is a proper noun and a trademark. Xerox is short for the company name, Xerox Corporation, and can also used to refer to a machine made by Xerox Corporation or the product of such a machine. It is incorrect to use Xerox as a verb or as a generic term. The proper generic terms are "copy" and "photocopy."
Steve Jobs and some of the Macintosh development team visited the Xerox Palo Alto Research Center where a system using a mouse and a graphical user interface was being developed. While the Apple team picked up some ideas there, the differences between the two systems are substantial. Some of the Xerox developers went to work for Apple and went on to develop their own system with features not included in the Xerox system.
Xerox Corporation developed its own software for the DocuTech family of machines.
There has never been anyone whose last name was "Xerox." Xerox is a made up word and was invented about 1958 for use as a trademark of what is now the Xerox Corporation.
Xerox which at the time was called Haloid Xerox (note: name didn't change to Xerox until 1961)
In 1979, Apple Computer's co-founder Steve Jobs visited Xerox PARC, where he was shown the Smalltalk-80 programming environment, networking, and most importantly theWYSIWYG, mouse-driven graphical user interface provided by the Alto.
Xerox, primarily through its Palo Alto Research Center, developed the Ethernet, the graphical user interface, and integrated it with the mouse and other pointing devices. The company also developed the laser printer, widely connected ot computers are high speed output devices.
Food coloring is not suitable for any use in any machine made or marketed by Xerox Corporation.
No. Xerox paper, like any other paper, is made up of wood pulp and additives and contains multiple elements.
Although The Xerox Alto (developed at Xerox PARC on March 1, 1973) was one of the first computers designed for individual use - making it arguably the first "Personal Computer" - it really wasn't marketed to the public, per se. The Alto was the first computer to be housed in a "desktop" configuration and to use a mouse-driven graphical user interface. The IBM model number 5150 was introduced on August 12, 1981. It ushered in… Read More
The alto saxophone was made in 1841 by Adolphe Sax!
Xerox PARC made it in 1976
This was actually developed in its modern GUI form by Xerox PARC on their Alto computer in 1973, but the basic concept had been in use on text based interactive editors for about a decade before that. Apple copied from Xerox PARC for use on their Lisa in 1983 and Macintosh in 1984.
Xerox does not mean photo copy, although some people use it as if it did mean that. "Xerox is a short form of the name of the company, Xerox Corporation, and a registered trademark owned by that company. Photocopy is a noun and means a copy of an original made through the use of a photographic process. The word photocopy can also be a verb meaning to make such a copy.
