NeXT Computer Part of Steve Jobs Legacy

The news of the passed away of Steve Jobs went around around the Digital Culture Public Sphere, here in Sydney very rapidly. Senator Lundy paid tribute. Stilgherrian collected comments from delegates, including Alan Noble (Google Sydney) for later publication. One of Steve Jobs works which should be remembered is the NeXT Computer. The NeXT was a failure commercially, but some of its features were incorporated in later Apple Macs, particularly the Mac OS X operating system using Unix features from NeXT. The world's first web server and web browser is said to have been developed by Tim Berners-Lee on a NeXT.
