Mac OS X

When Steve Jobs came back to Apple, it was as part of a package deal that included NeXT, a software and hardware company Jobs founded after his 1985 ousting from Apple. The operating system he developed there, NeXTSTEP, became the basis for Mac OS X, the first from-the-ground-up rewrite of the Macintosh operating system ever. Mac OS X, released in 2001, introduced a new aesthetic known as Aqua; the Cocoa development API; and Unix underpinnings, offering faster, easier and more secure multitasking. A decade later, it is the second most popular consumer OS.
