OR Matrox Millenium PCI Video Card
100% OpenStep(N.I.C.E.) , Linux and NT compatible. Optional configurations available.
The Top Shelf "Endeavor"
Our specialization in custom building 100% OpenStep Intel compatible workstations dates back to 1993, when NeXT discontinued the production of their proprietary hardware, and ported the true gem, the NeXTStep operating system, to Intel x86 Architecture.
The Top Shelf Workstations are OpenStep-ready PII & PIII, 400MHz, 450MHz, 500Mhz and 550Mhz systems. Our name "Endeavor" reflects how are customers use our technology to push science forward and Endeavor to succeed. OpenStep is a better operating system when compared to Windows and Linux in most respects for ease of use.
We at Black Hole are proud, positive and confident about stepping up to the plate and continuing to support OpenStep and Linux first and foremost, Microsoft OS third and as an optional OS. In fact for dual or triboot systems , we offer an alternative free NeXT like shell that runs over the top of Windows , we dub it Blackstep.
The DELLs, Gateways, IBMs, and Compaqs of this world don't offer OpenStep nor Linux and probably don't plan on offering them for Intel any time soon.
So we thought we would step right in and do it, to offer an alternative to the Microsoft way of thinking .
Our Top Shelf systems are custom-built with quality components, always directly supported by NeXT/Apple drivers. We offer OpenStep, Linux and WinNT or 2000, as well as an extensive catalog of 3rd Party software.
Our Endeavors provide the power you need to run software applications optimally, the Intel PII and PIII processors crunch numbers with ease, and 128 Mb of SDRAM keeps our systems running fast.
The combination of Adaptec SCSI Controllers with Teac or Toshiba or Yamaha CD, DVD or CDR ROM drives and Seagate or Quantum hard drives delivers quality workstation performance. Add a 2GB Jaz Drive as an option for backup and archiving your data.
We complement this powerful package with the high end graphics and smooth video performance of the ATI Rage Pro Expert Video card.
We are positive that our quality combination of components will make your OpenStep experience, ergonomically comfortable, precise, fun and fast, whether it be application development, networking or just navigating cyberspace on the web's native OS.
