This should probably go off list, but the Mac was the first widely
available GUI system. Preceding it were LISA (with a earlier version of the
Mac UI) and the Xerox PARC work; the latter stayed in labs and the former
was not widely available or visible. Other commercial GUIs drew from the
Mac (see for example GEM Desktop); nobody went back to the original PARC
design, as Ian observed.
