Ever since Intel announced their web tablet, there have been rumors that it would be running BeIA. Today Intel revealed some of the specifications for the webpad, including the operating system. They are not using BeIA, but rather windriver VxWorks. This will probably put the current batch of Intel rumors to rest. That said, Qubit and Sony both have great BeIA devices on the way, so Intel could end up being left out in the cold. What’s your take on this interesting non-event?

Interview

Jeremy Frisner wrote a cool server software that allows developers to send BMessage like things over a network interface. He calls it MUSCLE. To demonstrate it’s potential, he wrote a small app called BeShare, which has grown and become a great piece of software for BeOS users everywhere. Because of this, when Technix and I had the opportunity to interview him, we jumped at it. Not only did we get some info about him… we also got some info (and shots) of his next project.

Tucows reducing BeOS support?

Filed under the:  department.
Posted by:Ryan on Monday, 12 Feb, 2001 @ 1:29 PM
 
Submitted News

Tucows has a notice on their “Coming Soon” page that BeOS is being moved to their “classic” section. They state this is because of the focus shift to IA’s reducing the applications being released. We know that everyone is just waiting for BONE/OpenGL to be released, but Tucows doesn’t. As David Powell points out, “When Tucows asked the BSD community about dropping support for their OS, there was a huge response and Tucows reconsidered their position.” Maybe we should let Tucows know exactly how active BeOS is. Developers, make sure your apps show up there. Users, write them. Be… release Bone and OpenGL! :P

BeNews

BeNews recently ran an interview with Realtech-VR (great name, that) which covers everything they have been doing since SpaceGirl, a great looking 3d space shooter that has been discontinued for quite a while. The intriguing thing is that it quickly came out in the interview that Realtech-VR is strongly considering creating a Direct3D wrapper for BeOS api’s. In otherwords, Direct3D apps would just build on BeOS. Read on for details…
