Hardware, Embedded Systems "NeXT Computer (the original 68030 cube) was a high end workstation that was manufactured between 1988 - 1990. Back then it was a very expensive machine as a complete system would start at $6500 (in 1988 dollars). The machine is a 1 foot cube magnesium case that houses the computer. At the time, its performance was impressive, with a Motorola 68030 CPU running at a screaming 25Mhz, a dedicated floating point CPU, and a digital signal processor built into the system. NeXT cubes featured a magneto-optical drive that stored a whopping 256 Megabytes (by comparison, high end Mac systems at the time might have featured a 20 Megabyte hard drive.) In its day, this was the "Ferrari" of desktop systems!" No new information for the average OSNews reader, but lots of beautiful photos for a beautiful Saturday afternoon.

My blunt retort was meant as a sarcastic example of decending into hatred. Nothing more.


I get the feeling it was quite a bit more than that. I'm no prude, and I've been known to throw around some language here in a heated discussion, but your "blunt retort" was quite jarring even for me.

I can see merit in both sides of your discussion, but to descend that quickly into name calling and f-bombing is pretty telling about your state of mind. Chill, dude.
