    Inspired to start this thread by some fun I've been having this morning getting OPENSTEP v4.2 up and running under Parallels on my 3GHz Mac Pro. I had no idea OPENSTEP could run at this resolution (thanks to the VESA driver in OPENSTEP patch 4).

    OPENSTEP at 2560x1600, 8-bit color:

    NEXTSTEP became OPENSTEP became Rhapsody became Mac OS X

    Indeed, Window Maker, the official window manager of GNUstep, attempts to reproduce the look and feel of NEXTSTEP "in every way possible."

    Oh, yeah, I managed to get this GNUstep, which is free (OpenStep is now protected by apple even if apple is not selling it anymore, lol).

    I tried it under VMware, here is the screenshot

    Apple sent me CDs and docs for NEXTSTEP v3.3 and OPENSTEP v4.2 just by my writing in and asking for it. Just needed to list my NeXTStation's serial #. They no longer offer this. :)

    Does that driver allow you to change resolutions downward as well using the "Select..." button? I'm currently running an OpenStep driver for VMWare to get Rhapsody to recognize VMWare's video card; to your knowledge does that VESA driver support VMWare? Did you have to do any modification of the default.table inside the driver's config directory to get it to run at that high of a resolution, because this one is locked into 1024x768 and I'm too chicken to try to modify the "Display Mode" setting in the default.table file.

    I thought I'd show my small family of virtualized Macintoshes running on my MacBook. Just got the guts to install Rhapsody over the past week, and so it's new to the family. Not really a foreign OS, I know... EDIT: but my main reason for posting in the thread was to query blakespot on that driver. Plus this thread just can't die! :)
