by @ Thursday, April 15th, 2004. Filed under Gobe Software

According to a report at Zetajournal, YellowTab may be illegally distributing Gobe Productive 2.0 office suite.

Save GOBE!

by @ Monday, December 9th, 2002. Filed under Gobe Software

Gobe Productive to go GPL – BeOS based

by @ Monday, August 12th, 2002. Filed under Gobe Software

Gobe Productive, the famous BeOS (and now Windows/Linux) office suite, is no more. It has been bought by Free Radicals LLC. The good news is that their business plan requires that the entire package be GPL’ed. The even better news is that IIRC, Productive 3 for windows and linux was actually coded to mostly BeAPI […]

Just to catch up on some news before another week begins… BeNews noticed that Gobe has posted a screenshot of Productive 3.0 running under windows.

Gobe’s Tom Hoke recently posted to the BeGroovy forums that they are seeking input from Productive users on User Interface issues.

Gobe Software is Hiring!

by @ Thursday, January 11th, 2001. Filed under Gobe Software

Apparently Gobe is now hiring. They want people experienced in cross-platform development, which gives weight to the cross-platform rumors surrounding them. That said, the first platform they list is BeOS, so that is helpful. Anyway, it’s a good sign for Gobe that they are in a situation suitable to hire more engineers. Way to go […]
