Xerox PARC was massively important in the development of modern desktop computing, which is odd for a company which was primarily a photocopier manufacturer. Both Windows and the Mac interface were pretty much stolen from Xerox designs, and they also developed Ethernet, initially as a fast interface for their high end laser printers.
