OSX + NextStep History

in General Discussion edited January 2014
I found some cool stuff for all who would like do dig deeper in to the history of OSX and how it came about. Its quite interesting to see the mutation that took place between the two OSs, it also made me feel like X is really - seemingly - more NeXT that anything else. What do you guys/gals think?

(the site is kinda frozen in time but fascinating never the less. some cool screenshots of defunct technology are also fun to look at)

Also what do you think about the idea of a floating menu bar? If you dont know what I mean check out the Next screenshots. I guess it could be functional although not in all circumstances. Finally would a third party be able to implement this and would you use it?
