CNET’s Coverage of the Apple/NeXT Merger

From 1996:

Some analysts were cautious in their assessment of Apple’s wisdom in choosing Next. “I am a little bit surprised by this move, and I still have to digest this,” said Daniel Kunstler, who follows the computer systems industry for the investment banking firm J.P. Morgan. “There are no real details as to how they are going to use the Next technology and platform to jump-start their own operating system or how long it’s going to take.”

However, he added: “I really don’t see any downside to Steve Jobs returning to Apple.”
