Hardware, Embedded Systems "NeXT Computer (the original 68030 cube) was a high end workstation that was manufactured between 1988 - 1990. Back then it was a very expensive machine as a complete system would start at $6500 (in 1988 dollars). The machine is a 1 foot cube magnesium case that houses the computer. At the time, its performance was impressive, with a Motorola 68030 CPU running at a screaming 25Mhz, a dedicated floating point CPU, and a digital signal processor built into the system. NeXT cubes featured a magneto-optical drive that stored a whopping 256 Megabytes (by comparison, high end Mac systems at the time might have featured a 20 Megabyte hard drive.) In its day, this was the "Ferrari" of desktop systems!" No new information for the average OSNews reader, but lots of beautiful photos for a beautiful Saturday afternoon.

Nah, it was just like that since the begining of home computing.
People seem to want to be assured they are on the right side.

It just like that since the begining of... forever!
And it's not limited to home computing, far from it.
And it will not stop until humankind's end.

Get over it.
As one can ask to not use W8 instead of whining about it, one can ask to not listen to people whining about W8 instead of whining about people whining about W8...

People are free to whim.
They're also free to listen it or not.
