OSOpinion heeft een editorial over BeOS online gezet. Ik vind 'm best wel interessant:
BeOS is no Linux in mass appeal, but it is extremely fast, clean, and fun to use. I run high end SG Unix boxes at the shop and to be honest, I can't see much of a difference in performance between my 400 MHz box and the mega-buck 320 SG box at 500Mhz. I work with serious animation and graphics and demand serious performance. BeOS has delivered this much-needed performance.
Now running V4, I am constantly amazed at what this fresh OS can do. Maybe no contender for the desktop as of yet, but watch out! Be is making serious inroads with the graphics community and with animation/multimedia specialists. Be is also receiving droves of once happy Mac and PC users who are looking for something different to learn and play with.
I give Be a couple of years and then I think there will be enough ground support where we'll start seeing the BeOS loaded on PCs for sale as we now see MS Windows and Linux are.
Hmm, dan moet eerst Adobe maar eens zover gekregen worden dat Photoshop, Premiere e.d. naar BeOS worden geport. Een bijdetijdse browser (Mozilla 5?) zou ook wel handig zijn.
