EDIT: Never mind...

But you can find torrents of NeXTstep up to 3.3. I will continue to look for beta 4.

EDIT: I'm pretty sure its impossible to find NeXTstep 4.0. The only things ever released were a few screenshots. The only way to get a copy of the beta is to get an original beta floppy (rare) and make a copy.

I really like that tabbed dock idea from that screenshot.

I've tried some 3rd party apps that provide similar look, but they generally seem slow.
Having that functionality with the current dock would be cool.

NeXTstep is so like OS X. If you checked the Apps folder in the screenshot, you'll see most apps from OS X (Grab, Preview, etc.).

I don't know how well this forum likes people who revive old threads, but I'm pretty sure I've found this beta, so I'm just about to try installing it, so If it is what is being looked for, I'll give it out to those who PM or email me.

UPDATE #1:
I dunno what exactly happened, but I got this panic here:

I'm guessing it's either a corrupt CD image or the cd is too scratched up

UPDATE #2:
Just tried it in VMWare, does the same thing.
*swears repeatedly*
Looks like it's corrupted....


UPDATE #3:
Apparently it can be installed by upgrading it from NS 3.3, so I'm gonna try that ASAP and if it works, I'll let people have it

Well, I am not sure if any of the people here are still following this thread, but the ftp servers at betaarchive.com has version 4.0

I can't post credentials due to forum rules, but I'll dl and upload it if someone really wants it.
