To help Curt along with this sale, the Corvus Concept is a quasi-GUI
machine in that it is all graphics and window based but the extent of the
windowing is just to parition the screen for a text-based application,
although of course there are applications that take advantage of the
graphics. The windows do overlap as well.

One of the coolest aspects is the system bus: it is kind of a "superset"
of the Apple ][ bus. The edge connectors are the same and the signals are
very similar. Frank McConnell can add more to or correct what I am saying
here as he knows a bit more about it.

The Concept is definitely one of coolest of the early 68000-based
workstations. It is contemporaneous with the Apple Lisa having been
marketed in the 1982 timeframe. It had a very innovative architecture.

A must have. Bid high! :)
