The Société Générale Tortue word processor on a Concept-100 terminal. A close examination of the display reveals it's running a French language version of Logo.

General Turtle was a company spun off from the MIT Logo group, first to make floor turtles. It later made Turtle Terminal 2500 and the 3500, which was a small computer based on an LSI-11. It moved to Canada, under the name Société Générale Tortue, where the 3500 was commercialized as a word processor.
