We have made a short review on the GUI technologies used in the business world and their impact on Education. Starting from mainframe user interfaces, through the different client-server architectures we show the trends, what kind of surfaces the end-users would like to use. We discuss the reasons why the trends could not always be followed by different kind of systems. Even if such novelties are not accepted by Business, involving them in Education might be advantageous. The goal of this paper is to show the evolution in willing and realization of different approaches and also their affect in learning both at Company and at University level. We mainly focus on HTML based GUIs as well to emphasize the already traditional new era. Our paper collects the evolution of HTML capabilities and the current achievements as well to show the difference between smaller and larger software development companies. As an example we follow the available GUIs offered by one of the leading ERP manufacturers and show the education possibilities, requirements in the different evolution stepping-stones.
