We know Apple got their idea for an icon based GUI from Xereox, but wasn't Amiga already out or about to come out? 1) Who had the the GUI first? 2) From my understanding the Amiga was superior to Apple in almost every way---graphics, sound, and it had direct memory access independently of the Central Processing Unit preventing the system from crashing if one process fails. I realize Microsoft is a copy machine, but they had direct memory access independently of the Central Processing Unit before Apple. Amiga went out of business because they couldn't get any financing, but who is the true innovator between Apple and Amiga?
