The Xerox Star was a workstation built by Xerox in an attempt to make a product out of the revolutionary Xerox Alto. Technically, the Star was the name of the software system; the hardware was formally called the Xerox 8010 (its code-name was the 'Dandelion').

Like the Alto, it had a bit-mapped display, an Ethernet interface, and a keyboard and mouse to interact with applications.
