What is the .NXT File Extension?

.NXT File Extension Description:

The file extension NXT is known as the NeXT Sound File. The company that developed the NXT file extension is the NeXT Computer Inc., which was founded by the well-known Steve Jobs, following his initial resignation from Apple Computer, presently Apple, Inc.

The NEXT STEP Operating system, which uses the NXT file extension for its sound files, was the original multitasking and object oriented operating system. The NEXT STEP operating system is composed of several components: A UNIX OS that was founded on the Mach kernel and the BSD UNIX source code, a windowing engine and a Display PostScript, Objective C runtime and language, an OO or object oriented application layer that includes various kits, as well tools for developing the object oriented layers.

The user interface of NEXTSTEP, where the NXT file extension is executed, is consistent and very refined. It is also where users were introduced to the Dock and the Shelf concepts, which were carried over to the MAC OS X and the OpenStep operating systems. The NEXTSTEP OS was also one of the very first to implement a host of various graphical user interfaces concepts, which are now commonly used by operating systems, these are: 3D widgets, system wide drag and drop functionality (that can be used not only on icons) and pip services, dialog boxes of properties, real time window dragging and scrolling, and modification notices on windows among many others.

The NEXTSTEP operating system was also able to process sound and music, such as those found in the NXT file extension, by the use of the Motorola 56000 DSP. However, since NEXTSTEP has been discontinued, files saved in the NXT file extension should be converted to another file format for it to be recognized by other programs and operating systems.
