Mike McMahon (computer scientist)
|Known for||EINE, Symbolics|
Mike McMahon was a programmer at the MIT Computer Science and Artificial Intelligence Laboratory during the 1970s who worked with Richard Stallman on Emacs. He also wrote EINE, the first implementation of Emacs for Lisp machines with Daniel Weinreb. EINE stands for "EINE Is Not Emacs". EINE later became ZWEI (meaning, "ZWEI Was EINE, Initially").
Mike McMahon designed and implemented the New Window System for the MIT Lisp Machine in 1980 together with Howard Cannon. The window system was implemented using the Flavors object-oriented extension to Lisp Machine Lisp.
