Quote from: cuby on September 25, 2022, 04:12:41 AMUnfortunately not, the major problem is that no (open source) 68030/40 core is available (and somebody would have to write code to emulate the NeXT peripherals).

Quote from: Rob Blessin Black Hole on September 24, 2022, 07:14:13 PMHello NeXT Community: I think you all might find this Rare 1987/1988 computer interesting as the "GOD Computer" ran on a 68000K processor was only sold in Japan specifically for high end home gaming . It sure would be fun to make an emulator for NeXT hardware as they have a ton of really cool games or port the games over! Over $6K and when you see the GUI OS it looks very similar to NeXTSTEP enjoy, in fact the commentator even says it . Wiki:https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/X68000Good video on it: https://youtu.be/BlNY_oHtcasI've never heard of it until now but arcade quality sound and a 1Mb Graphics card in 1987/ 1988 was impressive and they to were manufactured until 1993 by Sharp.Also if this runs on MISTer FPGA , I'll bet NeXTSTEP would work as well.Best regards Rob Blessin
Quote from: zombie on December 19, 2022, 06:33:56 AMThat video has sooooo many inaccuracies and equally wrong/misinformed points of view, my brain is exploding.NeXT didn't fail or go out of business, like it tries to advance. It was bought for 400M. Being bought out is basically the #1 strategy for most successful startups. From that to little things like 'no progress bar' for initializing a disk. Um, yes there is. It's in the processes panel in Workspace. Something STILL not in macOS and frankly sorely missed.Just goes to show, history is not written by the winners (unless they are totalitarian despots).
