    Not true. Apple just modified the install config files to stop letting you install if you dont have an Intel mac. It runs just fine on a PPC - just modify the installer config files and you are good to go.

The strongly typed C++ approach pretty much won the argument though. Java and C# take more of a hybrid approach.
    Objective C was the preferred language on the NeXT platform. Some of these ideas have been assimilated back into Apple. It was definitely different programming in Objective C and Postscript for Display. Not sure I ever want to go back there, but it was "interesting".

    The NeXt workstation was a cool device. Biggest mistake they made was the optical drive of course. I never got into Objective C myself, I went straight to C++.
