Graphical user interface timeline (1985-2006)

A graphical user interface (or GUI, often pronounced "gooey"), is a particular case of user interface for interacting with a computer which employs graphical images and widgets in addition to text to represent the information and actions available to the user. Usually the actions are performed through direct manipulation of the graphical elements. Here is a timeline to show you how GUI evolved in the last 20 years. Examples for Windows, Mac OS, GNOME and KDE. Click to see the full image (2 MB).

I uploaded the full size image so that you can make a poster if you want.
