Xbox NeXT?

So Gizmodo tells us that the next Xbox models will be called “Xbox Next”.
Hmmm. Next? Like, NeXT?
I had the pleasure of using some of the first-generation NeXT’s during my misspent college youth. These were deeply weird machines: optical drives as primary storage (in 1989!); ultra-cool black cube design, and a UNIX-variant OS wrapped in a GUI that did screen display via Postscript (!!!). And oh, yeah, the pre-release versions we worked on had a tendency to, as a colleague was fond of saying, “crash like an Indy car.”
I learned OS development and assembler on those things, which probably explains a lot…
