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.

It's a new, OPENSTEP like OS, based off of the Linux kernel, but not your usual Linux distro. It is very much like NeXTSTEP, but with X11 instead of DPS. There is going to be a new live-cd release in the next month or so, and work is progressing to make 1.0 soon. There is a lot to be done, and many apps have not yet been started.
