Thoughts on Vista and a Brave New World

by @ Thursday, February 15th, 2007. Filed under OS Wars

Through my teaching part-time in the evenings career, I was given a copy of Vista to work on for use in the classroom environment. Luckily, I had purchased a Vaio laptop not too long ago, which is Vista and Aero ready… So I loaded it up to give it a run through. What do I […]

WalterCon 2004 announces OBOS new name

by @ Saturday, June 19th, 2004. Filed under OS Wars

With the start of WalterCon 2004 comes the new name for OBOS, Haiku. Too late for complaining, the t-shirts have been made. A URL to the images will be posted in the comments shortly.

Deej’s Rant

by @ Wednesday, August 13th, 2003. Filed under OS Wars

Sometimes I think this community just demands too much, expects too much, but contributes so little other than flack. Lately, the community has been fragmenting and infighting way too much to be in a healthy state. Disbelief. Disent among the ranks. The loss of values we once held dear. The ship has sunk.

OpenBeOS Makes a Splash!

by @ Friday, July 12th, 2002. Filed under OS Wars

Seems like OpenBeOS is coming further out of it’s shell, and people are taking notice. Slashdot paid attention to their recent community Q&A. OpenBeOS seemed surprised that they werent slashdotted. Thats the benefit of being on sourceforge folks.. it would essentially be like /. /.ing themselves. Aggregated resources via mergers, and other corporate speak. News […]

Cosmoe releases new version

by @ Thursday, June 20th, 2002. Filed under OS Wars

That most interesting of interesting os projects, Cosmoe (hmm, sound familiar?) has released a new tarball today. It apparently makes builds much easier. Cosmoe is a sort of dark horse in the race to replace beos, as it could do it, but that isnt it’s goal. It’s goal is to support tons of API’s on […]

Debian Linux for “beos refugees”

by @ Tuesday, September 4th, 2001. Filed under OS Wars

Just had someone point out a link on the Debian page to a Debian for BeOS Refugees guide. The goal of the document is to help people move to debian now that it seems BeOS has “been abandoned”. Now, I like Debian GNU/Linux. It is by far the best GNU/Linux I have tried. But it […]

OpenSource BeOS Clone project

by @ Monday, June 18th, 2001. Filed under OS Wars

A reader pointed out this project over at Sourceforge. It is a project to modify the AtheOS code to support BeOS applications, drivers, etc… in other words, OpenSource BeOS. Its an interesting project, but I am not sure it could replace the real thing. What do you think?
