Cool page, and important computers, but "Alto" != "Altos", even if you have
several of them.  Altos was a computer maker unrelated (AFAIK) to Xerox.
Certainly the Altos 8002 I had in the early 80s had _no_ resemblance to
anything along the typical Xerox PARC graphical-mouse-Etnernet axis.  The
Altos 8002 was a 64k RAM, Z80 processor, 2 x 8" floppy machine that ran CP/M
2.2.  Or, for masochochists, MP/M.  All character, all the time, over a
serial terminal.
