I was looking at my NeXT software, and I noticed that NeXT had a naming scheme for codenames / internal names for software. It was a word and a number and letter. So, I decided to create a list of all of them. If I'm missing one or you know that one that is wrong, feel free to post and let me know.

I'll have a look later today (boot up some older systems), but for the internal releases they often used things like 'Fuscia' as well.
