GNU, GPL, Open Source "So what is the state of the Hurd? Is it vaporware, like Duke Nukem Forever? Fortunately not: the code exists, there is still work going on (for instance as part of Google Summer of Code), and there are even some relatively functional Hurd distributions. Let's look first at the code and the current architecture, and then at the Hurd distributions."

"...NextStep was on version 3.3, released in 1995 when Apple bought them.

I don't mean to seem like I'm constantly correcting you, but no, wrong. OpenStep was released prior to the Apple acquisition. In fact, OpenStep 4.2 was the last release IIRC. Apple continued to ship OpenStep for quite a while after they owned Next.
No need to correct him here, he is saying the same thing you are, just with more mushy grammar. His sentence would read better as "NextStep was on version 3.3, which was released in 1995, when Apple bought them (in 1999)." He's not saying 3.3 was released after Apple bought them, but that it was already released at that point
