Actually, that's exactly backwards; Andrew had it right.  NS3.3 was the
end of the line for HPPA;  OpenStep never happened there. It's possible
that PDO for HP-UX continued after the native NeXTSTEP/Mach port was
canned, but I'm not sure.

One of these days I swear I'm going to put together my 725/100 and try it
out... :-)  (I've got a 725 and a 755, each with Fore ATM and Parallax 
video cards... NS won't support either of those, so I've been thinking 
maybe of scrounging up some external disks and dual booting...)

With the recent rescue of a Canon object.station 41 I can finally build
quad-fat binaries for 3.3 - Turbo Color + ND Cubes, SS4, HP725, and the
Canon - I just need some desk space!  For me it's been "time to move" for
a long time... Sigh.
