Just ran into this collection on YouTube, figure I share. Watched all 6 parts, very informational! I never knew how user friendly the Star really was...

Some odd reason the videos are named funny. Here is part 2 that links to the rest.

I don't see him actually using the GUI. It's a slide show presentation and description of the Star environment.

These ones are the actual GUI demos:

Did you even watch it? The last 4 segments have gui demos... LOL

First 2 are slide presentations explaining the era and basic stuff, and after that, rest is done with the gui, showing what the system was capable of.

Also if you look in Digibarns archives, they have other seminars as well dealing with music on the Mockingbird and Dorado using the gui...
