Title: Obtaining the NS 4.0 Beta...
Post by: jtfolden on October 26, 2006, 06:27:51 am
Hey all,

I was wondering how I might obtain a copy of the much sought after NS 4.0 Beta release.

Some of you may possibly know me via my old website at
http://www.thejagcompany.com/jtfolden/NeXTVIEW/ or my prior involvement with the Winstep project and while I've always loved the NeXT based UI I've never had a chance to see the Beta EUI in action for myself.

Thanks,
John

a poster here bought a cube recently that came from next and had much of the original data. i've often wondered if it included the beta..or any other hidden gems, but have not heard anything further.

These are great teasers. Now if there were just a source to install and use this for myself.

Sadly, they're a CRAM/MS Video format inside an avi container. I converted them all to xvid but they should be playable as-is with MPlayer or VLC, I think.
