The most beautiful thing I ever saw during my years in computer science at the Brussels Free University.

A Symbolics Lisp machine !

So open, so clean, so pure, well integrated, etc ...  these guys were good.
Now it also seems they were the first ever to register a domain name: http://symbolics.com/

It seems the genera environment survied somewhere in a corner of the Internet.

Anyone an idea if the lisp sources are somewhere available?

The system was so open, that even the scheduler (that was ofcourse written in Lisp) could be changed while the system was running.
