    Interesting stuff on the power of home computers.
    David Lynch edited the DVD content for Eraserhead and short films using a Mac running Final Cut Pro. When editing was complete, the DVD authoring was done with DVD Studio Pro, also running on a Mac.
    So far we've come since Lotus 123 (which began on the Mac [​IMG])

    Actually Lotus 123 was first sold in 1983 so it could't have been on the Apple MacIntosh platform.

    Lotus 123 began on the IBM PC. The Mac did not get Lotus products until Jaz, the Mac counterpart to the PC's Symphony. I believe this was in 1985.

    And yes, the video and DVD editing solutions available on the Mac are stupendous, especially considering their low overall cost.

    Sorry, I was thinking of Microsoft Excel. The first "graphical" point and click spreadsheet.

    So he's only authoring one disc at a time?
    No wonder back-orders are piling up! [​IMG] [​IMG]
