Submission + - Looking back at OS X's origins (

DJRumpy writes: Macworld Weekly has an interesting look at the history of OS X from it's early origins in 1985 under NEXT and the Mach Kernel to Rhapsody, to it's current iteration as OS X.

An interesting quick read if anyone is curious about the timeline from Apple's shaky 90's to their current position in the market. There's also an interesting link at the bottom talking about the difference between the original beta and the release product that we see today.
