Xerox Globalview 2.1 for Windows

Xerox Globalview is a desktop environment and office suite originally developed for the Xerox Star. It was developed in the MESA programming language on the Xerox Star, and ported to Sun Solaris, OS/2, and Windows 3.1 (The OS/2 version requires a MESA emulator card).

The SunOS version also contains Xerox Rooms for X. There is a separate version of Xerox Rooms for Windows.

Wanted: Original media for Xerox Star and OS/2 as well as documentation.
