Why doesn’t anyone use the STAR OS?

In 1981 it was light years ahead of the rest…

Digibarn: Xerox Star 8010 Interfaces, high quality polaroids (1981).

In fact, it was still better than most in 1992 when I used it at Xerox. What I had not realized until I saw these pictures was that it had basically not changed in 10 years. I recognize the system in all its details, except that I has a color screen. Makes you wonder where they would be today if they’d actually invested in it.
