I am beyond God, I am human. I am the razorblade on the communion vein.

The below is taken from

1985 NeXT (back to top)

One of the early adopters of Mach was a new computer company called NeXT. NeXT was founded by Steve Jobs, one of the founders of Apple Computer, when he left Apple following a failed attempt to take control of Apple back from John Sculley.

The NeXTSTEP operating system was released in 1988. It used the Mach microkernel, and added elements of 4.3BSD. It incorporated an advanced GUI arguably the most advanced available at the time. NeXT's engineers even created a new programming language Objective C to take advantage of the new GUI. The first web browser was created on a NeXT computer, as was the first definition of the HTML standard. (HTML is the technology that makes web pages.)

NeXTSTEP 2.0 was released in 1990, and added the Interface Builder which made the process of creating graphical interface elements, previously a difficult process for programmers, easy real-time spell checking, dynamic loading/unloading of hardware drivers, and full networking even NetWare and AppleTalk support.

NeXTSTEP 3.x added in internationalization, a 3D Graphics Kit, and a Database Kit.

NeXTSTEP originally only ran on NeXT's unique brand of computers. Because these computers although very advanced technologically were expensive, NeXT decided to port NeXTSTEP to other computer platforms in 1993. Eventually NeXTSTEP was ported to x86, HP PA-Risc, and SPARC computers. However, because HP and SPARC computers already had advanced UNIX variants, and Windows 3.1 was already so entrenched on the x86 platform, NeXTSTEP didn't sell well. NeXT replaced NeXTSTEP with OpenStep 4.0 as a programming environment for the last year it existed.

A screenshot of OpenStep. Click for an enlarged version. Mac OS X users may recognize the precursors of the Dock and Column View.

NeXT's technology was saved in 1996 when Apple Computer began looking for a new, fully modern, operating system to replace the aging Mac OS. After considered other, modern operating systems, Apple settled on NeXT.

Learn UNIX man, it is the foundation for all networking. IMO
