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.

Xr + GNUstep?

A GPU improvement to the xlib backend (like
would turn GNUstep which base on a postscript nature
display system into an incredible monster. Wonder if this
will make GNU/Linux a superior system than OS X in a day.
I can't wait to dream that happen.
