I submitted the GTK style for WM, what seems like a lifetime ago. I actually like the LiveCD distro. Good to see it still around, but at the same time it saddens me that the dream of a NeXT desktop in X never really came to fruition.

So much work to keep Amiga alive, and yet the appscape there is absolutely barren. NeXT was rich and remains to this day the best user environment ever. If I had a modern web browser for OPENSTEP 4.2 I'd still be using it ;)

I used to love WM. In fact at one point I had replaced the Explorer shell in windows woth Afterstep because I liked it so much.

Do yhey have a Netsurf port for the NeXT? That seems to be the go to modern browser for m68k family of systems these days. Though sadly it sounds like they are dropping the Atari build, but the Amiga one is still alive.
