Apple bought NeXT.  Seen this thing called "Mac OS X" lately? :)  
It's basically "Next-Generation" NeXTStep/OpenStep on PPC hardware.  

Every time I think "you know, I should find a NeXT Cube and a NeXTDimension 
board", i realize that I've got that hardware, just its successor, in front of 
me here at home (Dual 867Mhz G4, 2G RAM).

(I read somewhere that the "next-gen" NeXT boxes were going to be PPC...)

I still do have a hankerin' for a Cube, though.  I have the original 12"x12"
brochure that I got from NeXT when I was in junior high...
