Second Coming of NeXT

Slashdot also has a small piece (with link)
to the Macworld article discussed in our last posting
here ("OS X is Unix"). There is a particularly fine
and truthful quote we found in the user responses
to
the article:


Steven Staton explained: "What makes me sad is
how few of you actually got to work on the NeXT. This is
like the Second Coming of NeXT, and as one of the few
(lucky) ones who saw it in the Cube Daze, let me tell
you, it's great to see it back."


...and I can tell you, we here at macrumors are most
certainly in excited agreement. I just don't think most
people understand just how extraordnarily fine
the coming of MacOS X is. Its promise is why I came
back to the Mac a year and a half ago. (And by the
way...for those interested, Arn just got word that
his MacOS X Public Beta CD has shipped from
Apple!)
