Comment on "Mac OS X is Six Years Old Today"
by Manton Reece — Mar 24
Michael, that's certainly true. I only take issue with saying that it is "just" a new version of NeXTSTEP, because I think it's a divisive statement and not accurate. The whole point of celebrating Mac OS X's birthday is to appreciate that it is a new operating system! It brings new possibilities for classic Mac OS developers, old NeXT folks, and recent Windows switchers.

Just a new version of NeXTSTEP would be, I dunno, Rhapsody or even Mac OS X Server 1.0. But we don't mark Mac OS X's anniversary with those releases, because they were missing important parts of the Mac experience.
