GNU, GPL, Open Source "So what is the state of the Hurd? Is it vaporware, like Duke Nukem Forever? 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."

Dude, are you really trying to correct someone who actually ran OPENSTEP 4.2 on a nextstation. LOL.


For the nth time, with the advent of version 4.x NS was commonly known as OPENSTEP. The name is for both, the API and the underlying OS for what used to be NeXTStep (or was it NextStep?).

Deal with it.

So, I ran NextStep on a Cube, Do you really think you are the only person on this site who has experience?

Anyway, So they changed the name for version 4, big deal, you win, that doesn't change the fact that OpenStep is the name of the API, or that GNUStep is also based on OpenStep.
