I was the head of Canon's effort around Intel based hardware running NeXTstep, and have packed away an object.station 41 that I would like to find a new home for.

It was working when last used, about 10+ years ago.

I also have some literature and sales material from that time, as well as manuals and drivers for NeXTstep and Win-NT

Do not believe I still have the keyboard, but any PS2 keyboard will work.

This unit is serial number 00001, the 1st 'production' unit that was never sold. Am looking for someone who would be interested in it as I no longer have a place to keep it. I do have two conditions:

1) You pay shipping,
2) You need to find some way to post the drivers for downloading by others. (both NeXTstep and Win-NT drivers)

If interested, please contact me at: al_thomason@iname.com Computer is currently located in Portland OR

Thank you

I've personally seen this and such a great piece of engineering.

(Yet to fix re-configuring my blog...)

Al, if you stayed around Portland, I'd love to drive over, chat once more, and get this thing humming again...

Hello: I have one here as well please let me know when you post the drivers an install guide would be helpful , I tried going about it the normal intel install way but am stymied and thinking maybe they had a special boot floppy or drivers? Best regards Rob Blessin

I have one of these as well. I could image the disk from y working machine (using dump). That should allow you to just format a drive, and use restore to get everything else going.

Hello Gavin: That would be cool, it would be kind of neat to get her running. Best regards Rob
