Definitions for "Xerox"
Everybody else knows them from their photocopiers, but computer people are just as likely to think of Xerox PARC, founded in 1970, and still in operation. There, the mouse, the GUI, client/server architecture, laser printing and the Ethernet/ LAN were all born. In a company with executives totally focused on paper and business machines, it took young outsiders like Steve Jobs and Bill Gates to visit PARC and take away the ideas for their own companies: Apple and Microsoft. Xerox did try. Their D series computers pre-empted the PC s of the 1980s by a decade. And a Xerox word processor had a paper shaped monitor that displayed an entire page at once, but no one would pay more the $10,000 per station for it. Today, few remember Xerox was ever in the computer field at all.
