Is the guy that wrote this statement high or is he just an idiot. NextSTEP never used Windows NT technology. The only thing Windows NT used of next heritage was the Openstep Development environment. That was ported over and that was it. It never used Hal it alwasy used Mach as the microkernel and BSD unix as its abstraction layer. Even when Jobs ported it over to the x86 hardware. So before you print something and make yourself look like an idiot learn what you try to talk about.

    It doesn't look like you read the post you're so brazenly flaming. Before you call someone an idiot you might consider whether you understood what they said. I don't think he's saying that when you bought a NeXT box it was really NT, but that you could install NeXT on top of NT (probably much like Be allowed you to install BeOS on top of Windows).
