From The Free On-line Dictionary of Computing (30 December 2018) :

      An object-oriented application
     programming interface (API) derived from NEXTSTEP and
     proposed as an open standard by NeXT in 1994.
     OpenStep is the specification of the object kits of NEXTSTEP.
     OPENSTEP/Mach was an implementation of this specification.
     The original, OPENSTEP version 4.0, and really was NEXTSTEP 4.
     Rhapsody was the codename for Apple's Mac OS X Server,
     which is really NEXTSTEP 5 (it calls itself "kernel 5.3" at
     boot time).
     OpenStep was designed to be implemented independently of the
     computer's operating system, hardware, and user interface.
     The API for Rhapsody will be a superset of OpenStep's.
     When the OpenStep API is implemented for a specific platform
     and made into a product, it is written in uppercase,
     e.g. OPENSTEP Developer 4.2 for Mach, or OPENSTEP Enterprise
     for Windows NT and Windows 95.  Versions of OPENSTEP exist
     for Windows 95/NT, Solaris, HP/UX, and Mach.
