Is this the same focus that yesterday said rap-so-dee will NOT run on Intel?
Also how to you define power user? If your talking about www.disney.com I
would have to agree. If however your talking about the other 97% of the web
sites NeXTStep 3.3/Apache/Web Objects lite will more than suffice, and is a
better solution than most "professional (insert NT here)" solutions

I don't think NeXT/Apple will do anything to WO. WebStar is a joke. Check
out MacWeek this week or last. It is being used, because for the most part
the advertising community/graphics community uses Mac's and they don't
know, nor do they have a clue how to even begin to set up something like
Apache. Rap -so-dee will ship with a built in web server, which I'm sure
will be based on something a little more substantial than WebStar.
HAVE YOU RESTARTED YOUR COMPUTER LATELY?
Restarting the computer frees up space that,

the computer uses only temporarily. - NeXTStep Power Tips, pg. 19
