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.

Oh dang I wish sometimes Apple stayed with the Rhapsody UI, which was sort of like OS9, but somewhat darker, and felt heftier. And it was a trip to run an OS with the Mac interface on my PC (so no BlueBox for me) ;)

I also had the YellowBox dev tools, which was interesting to play around on in Windoze.
