I've been thinking the same thing since I saw it a few days ago.

Maybe on the CD-ROM is the Beta, but the CD is selfburned.

That would be too good to be true, but the auction was withdrawn early so who knows what it really was.

It probably will run in Qemu....
Of course it'll need some patches though.

well, shame on me Embarassed we have the best sources about NS/OS made by RacerX on his website ... even the above picture was taken from his page ...

I can confirm now that the OPENSTEP 4.0 BETA is the one that looks like the NS 3.3 or 4.2 ... Confused

For most of us, what we know about NEXTSTEP 4.0 Beta comes from a single screenshot that NeXT provided. This shot (below) is quite intriguing if for no other reason that the fact that... well, we never got the features shown in that shot. NeXT reversed itself on the GUI directions it was taking and when they finally released OPENSTEP 4.0 the look and feel was almost identical to that of the previous NEXTSTEP 3.3 release.

I had a beta of NEXTSTEP that had that blue menu and gradient thing going on. Could OPENSTEP do that as well? I could be mixing the two up.

I got it running on one of those Canon 486 machines that ran NEXTSTEP.. what were those called again? The Canon Object Station? I've got to dig that out of storage...
