I've got a 1987 Mac SE that's running System 3.3 on it that I could demo - assuming I can make it to the meeting (I believe I can).

It would be interesting to compare the Mac GUI to GEOS - in particular GEOS128 which would run hi-res on a C128. It would also be interesting to compare the write and paint applications of that era. The Commodore computers were right on the doorstep for GUI development - along with the Apple IIgs, and of course Microsoft Windows (still way behind in 1987!).

Just a thought! But then again, a Mac might not be retro enough for this group! :)

Hi all,

Just to mix things up a bit:  Would there be interest in an "Other
70s/80s Computers" night at the March TPUG meeting?  (March 19th)

I've got some Tandy gear that's been sadly neglected, and I know many
others at TPUG have other retrocomputing interests but no venue in
which to showcase them.  I for one would be seeing some of your other

To keep it somewhat on topic, we could always compare/contrast them
with Commodore machines from the same era.

Comments, discussion?
