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.

NeXT people at Apple
by Paul on Tue 15th Jul 2003 22:59 UTC

Since its return at Apple, it seems that the NeXT team has been re-built by Jobs. Most of the old guard is here, including people that never left (like Serlet, Tevanian, Heinen, Ozer, Kane etc.) and many that are back like Rubinstein (who was responsible of the hardware at NeXT and is now in the same role at Apple), J.M. Hullot the father of Interface Builder and a big part of NEXTSTEP (he was CTO of NeXT) which is also back at Apple, Bud Tribble one of member of the initial NeXT team, who the became VP at SUN and founded Eazel before going back to Apple.
