OpenStep is an API developed by NeXT and Sun Microsystems. The name was also used (though as "OPENSTEP") for the NeXTSTEP operating system starting at version 4.0. The OpenStep API was available for Windows NT and the "OPENSTEP for Mach" operating system was available on Intel x86, Sun SPARC and the NeXT 68K.

Tips/Tricks

Shutdown/restart option on login window

Troubleshooting

68K 4.2 Boot Graphic disappeared

It's a bug in 4.2 (affects both m68k and i386).  Either remove the  
"Language" preference from the root account,

# Do this as root
> dremove System Language

Of course, the Language preference gets reset everytime root logs in.

Alternatively, boot in verbose mode, to see boot progress.
