Loved the Libretto back in the 90s. Paperback book sized portable workstation. Had a Ricochet Wireless modem hooked up. Road Warrior stuff! I remember running the Windows NT 5 Betas and then 2K on it. I even had it dual boot into BeOS. If memory serves, the trick around the proprietary floppy issue was that we used a PC Card controller hooked up to an external portable CD-ROM drive to install alternate operating systems.

NeXT couldn't keep up with Intel and by the time Jobs caved in and went with his dual-architecture 68K/Intel binary format, it was too late.

Whilst Apple did have hybrid 68k/PPC binaries back in the 90s, and they did have hybrid PPC/Intel applications during the transition to Intel CPUs,.."68K/Intel binary format"?
