BeOS & Derivatives "Last Friday Oliver and I met up to discuss the state of things and how we intend to proceed. The run-time support for package management in Haiku (in the package management branch, of course) is in pretty good shape already. With the system itself and all the third-party software living in packages the system boots and is fully functional."

Well, as with all great OS designs, it's not till the mass market is tapped that they get traction. Next was just too late to the party. But OpenStep actually runs quite well on modest PC hardware and under emulation.

There's also a version of the OPENSTEP API that actually runs on top of Windows NT. Well, two versions... one circa OpenStep, one circa Rhapsody. It kind of runs a bit screwy on a multi monitor set-up, but it has a version of Project Builder and Interface Builder that run under NT, a full compiler that targets Objective-C and C/C++, as well as a bunch of examples. I believe it even supports the Java bridge. It's pretty cool.
