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.

Not true. I have it running on a PIII and it works flawlessly on an Athlon XP. When you have the latest patches from Apple installed it works with any AGP graphics card that supports VESA. I can use my DVD-ROM drive, my CDRW drive (even burning works). The only drawbacks are that the largest partition size is 8GB and you have to put in an ancient sound card to get sound.
