Apple computer’s proposed multitasking, object oriented, operating system for
the Power PC-based Macintoshes, based on NeXT’s OpenStep. It will replace the
failed Copeland OS (Operating System) and the current
Mac OS. Rhapsody Blue Box
is a Mac OS emulator that runs under Rhapsody as a single task.
Rhapsody Yellow Box is the part of the OS
that runs new applications specially written for Rhapsody. The main problem this new
OS faces is attracting
application developers. It certainly would be nice to have an object oriented, Java
oriented OS that can run on Intel, PowerPC and picoJava chips.
