What is Mac OS 8.0 Copland (Beta Builds)?

Copland OS was supposed to be the turning point of classic Mac OS.  Starting from 1994, it was supposed to introduce true multitasking, protected memory.  Copland could have been the foundation of Mac OS X altough it was commonly being refered to as Mac OS 8 (altough it's not what we all have used).  The project was accumulating new features so quickly and the development was so off track out of schedule that it finally was cancelled on summer of 1996.  Apple purchased NeXTSTEP before the end of that year from which they would base their new OS (Mac OS X shipped in 2001) and the real Mac OS 8 that people used in 1997 was a more evolved version of Mac OS 7.
