The Intel version of Rhapsody most likely has direct heritage in the
NEXTSTEP/OPENSTEP Intel port. Around the time NeXT got out of the
hardware business, they ported NEXTSTEP to Intel, Sparc, and PA-RISC.
The NS3.3 install CDs come with media for all the platforms. And I know
they were still supporting the Intel hardware as late as OPENSTEP 4.2.
