OS X is the culmination of Apple Inc.'s decade-long search for an operating system to replace the original Mac OS. After the failures of their previous attempts; Pink, which started as an Apple project but evolved into a joint venture with IBM called Taligent, and Copland, which started in 1994 and was cancelled two years later, Apple began development of their most recent operating system (Mac OS X) with the acquisition of NeXT's NEXTSTEP.
