If you've ever been curious to test out Apple's original Lisa operating system, you'll get the chance to do so next year using the original source code. Al Kossow, a software curator for the Computer History Museum, announced that the source code for Apple's first operating system with a graphical user interface has been recovered and is currently with Apple for review. After the tech giant reviews it, the Computer History Museum will make the source code available to all sometime in 2018.

The original Lisa computer, named after Jobs' eldest daughter, came out in 1983 and was generally considered to be a flop. It was a hard device for consumers to embrace because, at the time, it cost approximately $10,000. However, its operating system laid the foundation for the macOS we're familiar with today.
