we love the idea that there is going to be some major hardware and
industry support for OpenStep. The technology is, in our opinion, the
best out there. The fact that almost every major software-thingy has
been prototyped on NeXT systems is a testament to that. 

we are very much looking forward to Apple's roolout of rhapsody, etc.!
