Not Apple: NeXTstep is the OS that was developed by NeXT when Steve
Jobs got kicked off Apple, and when he reintegrated Apple he brought it
back with him.  Mac OS X can be seen as a merge of Mac OS and NeXTstep.

The API used for the NeXTstep port is also supported by GNUstep, so this
port can also support GNUstep, tho sadly this doesn't work very well
right now, mostly for lack of active users willing or able to help debug
and maintain it.
