As Apple releases a new iteration of Mac OS X, it’s interesting to see the origins of such powerful system, and realize that what we’re currently using (we as in we Mac users) is in fact NeXTStep OS. Also, we could probably use a NeXT computer as easy as if we were using a Mac if we somehow stumbled upon a working NeXT machine today.
In 1994 i was having a MS-DOS introductory course in the old Portuguese Youth Institute. God, what would I have done if I could instead play with a machine like this.. Looking back it seems as if I was in the Medieval times while Steve came from the shinny 21st Century.
