I never actually said that the Archimedes was the *first ever* to boot a GUI, actually I was comparing it to the *PC* as only that platform would probably be deemed by JWoody as "influential" whereas Acorn (and Atari and everyone other than a select few) were "uninfluential" and therefore unimportant.
