25th Anniversary of the World Wide Web
A NeXT Computer and its object oriented development tools and libraries were used by Tim Berners-Lee and Robert Cailliau at CERN to develop the world’s first web server software, CERN HTTPd, and also used to write the first web browser, WorldWideWeb.
A little history about NeXT… NeXT was founded in 1985 by Apple Computer co-founder Steve Jobs, after being forced out of Apple. In 1996 Apple Computer acquired NeXT (and Steve Jobs). The NeXTSTEP operating system was released in 1999 as Mac OS X Server 1.0. The basis for OS X and eventually, in turn, for iOS.
