Well, uh, er. Perhaps on first glance it wasn't very different. But
keep in mind that in Symbolics Genera most things were done with
Dynamic Windows, a precursor to CLIM. Nearly everything was clickable
in one way or another. And clicking did one of N different actions.
But TI's system kept closer to the MIT roots, which were based on
plain TV (the name of the basic window system, which Dynamic Windows
was built upon).
