geekery of the day: Next OpenStep inside WindowMaker

Today's geekery. Openstep 4.2 running inside Virtualbox under Ubuntu 12.04 running WindowMaker (a window manager clone of NextStep).

I am trying to make a QEMU image so I can run NextStep/Openstep inside Android. Wish me luck.

Retro-computing at its best!


  1. Hi, Trying to find somewhere else to put this comment, but as of yet I can't find a proper contact page or anything so sorry for putting it in-line in this post

    Really like the information contained on your blog, but its a pain to read in its current format.

    On my iPad and iPhone, it tends to run out of memory if I browse down to far and the images stop loading. On Windows or OSX its doesn't feel like the best experience either.

    Keep up the good work, but I feel the quality of presentation is letting down the excellent content. (I need to revisit my blog as well).

    1. Thanks for letting me know. I am using blogger platform and I'm using a vanilla template. I will look into it.
      I switch the mobile template (for iPhone) so it paginates postings now. This should use less memory because it won't load all the post along with all the hi-res images.
