Fortunately not: the code exists, there is still work going on (for instance as part of Google Summer of Code), and there are even some relatively functional Hurd distributions. Let's look first at the code and the current architecture, and then at the Hurd distributions."

IAlso, NextStep was on version 3.3, released in 1995 when Apple bought them. It was first realeased in 89, and Apple bought them in 99. NextStep also ran on mach and BSD.


Apple bought next in 96 and released Rhapsody in 98.

They certainly did not buy Next in 1996, they bought it in 1999. Rhapsody was released, as OS X, but that happened in 2000.

Actually, I looked it up again, and I was wrong, it was 1996, not 99. Sorry

And NextStep was in version 4.0 and named "OpenStep" by then ;-) I still have the box somewhere...
