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 still have OPENSTEP 4.2

I had fun with it, but I don't even had a PC anymore. If anyone is interested, I'd be willing to part with it for 100-200 (though I admit you got to be a pretty hardcore hobbyist to buy it for that ;) ). It runs on PCs (better be careful, you need some older P1 or P2-era HW)

It has the install CD, developer CD, and the database development stuff, plus manuals for installing, programming, etc, and it all comes in a good-sized box and weighs a heft amount with all the literature inside.

Best offer wins ;)
