VisiCorp's VisiOn Graphical User Interface System
for IBM and compatible PCs

The following screen shot was excerpted from the article: “The New Generation of Human-Engineered Software” by Gregg Williams, from Byte 4/1983. (reproduced courtesy Marcin Wichary). VisiOn developed by VisiCorp, creator of the groundbreaking VisiCalc spreadsheet applicaion was one of the first windowing applications to run on standard IBM PCs and compatibles and supported the use of a mouse. Introduced after the Xerox Star 8010 and the Lisa from Apple, and just before other windowing application shells like GEM or Windows 1.0, VisiOn for a brief time was a possible path for introducing a graphical user interface to the DOS world.
