Eleven members came to the Victory Hall to hear Stuart's talk on how Apple found a new operating system for the Mac, and saved itself from collapse- not just because that new OS came complete with Steve Jobs. Back in 1984, the Mac was designed & heavily optimised for a single user to run a single application, which could do a single task at once.
