原来Adobe也跟施乐Xerox有关,唉,看来施乐跟IBM有的一拼啊。。。。
这段文字,来自wikipedia,其中有提到postscript和Adobe。。。。

InterPress is a page description language developed at Xerox PARC, based on the Forth programming language and an earlier graphics language called JaM. As with many PARC projects, Interpress was not commercialized at its time of creation, and its primary effect on the world was to cause some of its creators (Chuck Geschke and John Warnock) to get fed up, form their own company, and publish their own version. The company in this case was Adobe Systems, and their version is known as PostScript. InterPress was used in some Xerox printers, and supported in Xerox Ventura Publisher, but it is not clear whether or not it achieved significant market-share. InterPress was also used as the output format for PARC's InterScript system, which was an editable word processor format for rich documents.

也由此可见,这个PARC相当不简单,可以跟加州大学Berkeley分校相提并论了,关于Xerox PARC的简介:
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Xerox_PARC

这里只摘录一段简介,

PARC was founded in 1970, and incorporated as a wholly owned subsidiary of Xerox in 2002. It is best known for inventing laser printing, Ethernet, the modern personal computer graphical user interface (GUI) paradigm, ubiquitous computing, and advancing very-large-scale-integration (VLSI).

Today PARC collaborates with sponsors and clients to discover novel business concepts and transfer scientific findings into production. Current research areas include biomedical technologies, "clean technology", user interface design, sensemaking, ubiquitous computing, large area electronics, and embedded and intelligent systems.

关注这个公司,说不定下一次什么先进的东东还是从这里冒出来:)

尤其注意这一段,

Most critics don't realize that computing research was a relatively small part of PARC; there were many researchers working in areas such as materials science at PARC, including pioneers in LCD and optical disc technologies.

其实何须这么多,只要这些中的任何一项,PARC都可以被铭记史册了。另外,Park还有两个图灵奖的获得者!
