Work in Progress
Loads on at the moment work-wise, but I am currently preparing a series of articles on beta and unusual operating systems which will go into deeper detail than the usual couple-of-screenshots-of-the-desktop which seem to populate the web. These will be written when the ‘proper work’ load has been reduced to my satisfaction.
After writing the OPENSTEP VMWare tutorial, I’m going to focus particularly on the roots of the operating system which powers my computing life – Mac OS X, but Windows and others will be covered also.
A selection of the subject matter:
- Mac OS X Public Beta
- Mac OS X Server 1.0
- Mac OS 8, 9 & X (10.0 -> 10.6)
- Apple/NeXT Rhapsody OS
- NeXTSTEP / OPENSTEP
- Windows Neptune (2000/XP)
- Windows Cairo/Chicago/Memphis (NT4/95/98)
- Windows Longhorn (Vista)
- Windows Janus (b3.1, I believe)
- A/UX 3.0
Should be fun! I’ve been amassing a few different systems to work with – 68k, PowerPC and x86…it won’t all be VMs – so there’ll be some *real* hardware mixed in there as well.
