Apple’s Lisa Operating System is now open source

Apple is releasing their Local Integrated System Architecture (LISA) OS as open-source next year. If you recall, the Apple Lisa didn’t sell well at all, as a matter of fact it only sold ~10K units. However, it was the first PC to have a GUI and use a mouse.
