i asked a similar question a long time ago (but about nextstep), and the
answer is it's not that easy cause Step/Os X do not use The X Window System.
Rather it uses some proprietary display system. (display postscript??)
however it's still a *nix, so (should/might) still integrate pretty well
into a Unix enviroment, viz NFS, home direrctories, NIS.. etc.
Uhmmm.. User and Unix friendly workstation? Could be the beginning of swing
away from NT/95 back to Unix in corporate space.
