|(Ad images from a gallery of Apple and NeXT ads at macmothership.com)|
I first encountered NeXT machines when I was an undergrad and the chair of Vassar's CS department was on NeXT's academic advisory committee and NextStep was at version 0.8 (and before its subsequent case changes to NeXTStep or NeXTSTEP). Around 1989 or 1990 NeXT started promoting their computers with the ads above. They proclaimed "In The 90s, We'll Probably See Only Ten Real Breakthroughs In Computers. Here Are Seven Of Them." Now that about 15 years have passed, how did they do with their prognostication?
Read about the predictions and my analysis of how they stood the test of time.
