OpenStep, GNUstep Every so often I have this urge (maybe more of an itch) to spend hours and hours on the web trying to find information about old, obsolete computers of the past. I am intrigued by the XEROX Alto and Star ('70s-'82), the Apple Lisa ('83) and, of course, CRAYs ('75-ish). These were revolutionary machines indeed, they wrote golden pages in the history of computing. In the end of the 1980s, a new innovative product was ready to ship, created by a bunch of people coming from Apple: The NeXT platform.

I'm jealous. If only i had 330$USD to blow. Why didyou choose the slab as opposed to the cube though? The cubes are so cool. What kind of expansion slots do they have again? Something proprietary right?

I've heard a lot of people call Display Postscript very slow, you just mention OmniWeb being slow, but could you notice any other slow downs graphically?
