I’ve finally decided to buy (in some weeks) an 14″ Apple iBook G4.
When I was 15, I discovered the NeXT computer and the NeXTstep operating system in the French computer magazine SVM and it was love at first sight. I still remember the feeling I had just looking at those gorgeous picture of the NeXT computer and the fantastic screenshots. And I said to myself: “I’ll buy a NeXT one day…”
Today, the NeXT is long dead but NeXTstep is thriving in Mac OS X, the operating system of Apple Macintosh computers.
And that’s why I’m buying an iBook. It’s well-featured, has a very nice design and, crucially, runs Mac OS X very well.
NeXTstep, nous voilÃ … after 17 years!
