This fascinating documentary was filmed from December 1985 to March 1986 at NeXT's team retreat in Pebble Beach. It offers a rare glimpse of Steve's vision, aspirations and managerial approach.

Remarkable documentary - several planning meetings and discussions during NeXT's early days, with Steve Jobs and his team, many of which also worked on the Macintosh. You have to see this.

Actually, you have a point. OSNews is much less interesting than it used to be; I have been reading this site since 2005 and around late 2009 IMHO it started going downhill. There are rarely, if ever, posts about operating systems anymore - it's all about the last tech trend and mobile and mobile and mobile.. ok, it's the latest hot thing, but this is "OS"news not "smartphone" news.

If I want to read a "smartphone" news site, there are many ones that are much better and up-to-date than OSNews; OSNews used to be the place where you would hear people talk about BeOS, QNX, and niche and obscure operating systems. That was OSNews's strength and what set it apart from the rest...

And before someone starts yelling out, "Alternative OSes" died, they plainly have not, just, perhaps, became even more of a niche than they were - and that is obvious, in a world where most computer and device users are just consumers.

What's the place for OSNews, the way it currently is, nowadays? I wonder... it might generate more advertising revenue - ok, there's no free lunch - but it is becoming more and more irrelevant.. it happened often that other sites would link to original content on OSNews back in the day - now, with very little original content - no links to be found!

Food for thought.
