Technology History - Adobe

John Warnock and Charles Geschke left Xerox PARC in 1982 in order to further develop and commercialize their PostScript page description language. Their new company, called Adobe, was named for the Adobe Creek in nearby Mountain View, California. The company's first success was the use of PostScript in the Apple LaserWriter printer product, which played a significant role in the development of desktop publishing.
