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.

Yeah, good article and a nice NeXT machine you got, Eugenia. Even in the screenshots of that old OS you can see that it is the father of OS X.
Many goot ui ideas were in there. After all I am really glad that NeXT took over Apple...errr - or was it the other way? ;-)
