I had wanted to run OpenStep with VMware but sadly couldn't find the the CDs on eBay! I fell in love with NeXT back in the day but could never afford a machine -- a few years later my friend got me a slab, but I had to return it to him as my life was in meltdown during the dot.com meltdown.

If you liked the Xcode/Interface Builder similarities, Gene Backlin (he wrote a book on NeXT development in 1995 and a book on iPhone development in 2010) talk on it from last year's (2010) SecondConf talk: http://www.secondconf.com/videos/, "NeXT to X: A Trip Down Memory Lane".
