First Web Server

Yours truly next to the first web server located in CERN.


The first web server is located in the Microcosm exibit hall.

Here are the specs that Robert Cailliau sent me.

NeXT System from 1989.

Processor: 25MHz Motorola 68040

Memory: 8MB

Disk: 256MB

Ethernet: built-in


Acording to him it should still run.

Its operating system is NeXTStep (Unix on a Mach VM Kernel with a user-interface in Display Postscript)


NextXStep was way ahead of its time, It was the time where in Windows was still in it's 3.1 state. Luckely this now lives on as Apple Mac OS X
