    Some people are dangerous when they feel out of the picture. Some rough times. Ah well.

    What was the company that he tried to start, and was Apple successful? It's interesting how things come full circle, right?

    Yeah, I'd be curious to know what the settlement was like on that suit. I assume he actually pulled whatever employees he wanted over to NeXT, but who knows...?

    It was NeXT, and it resulted in an out-of-court settlement that restricted NeXT to the workstation market only.

    On the upside, we ended up with NeXTStep.
