Lost Marble calling it quits on BeOS

Well, it’s official. Lost Marble has dropped support for BeOS, after reluctant updates in the past. The 0confirmation came in a reply to BeNews inquiries about a 2.6 release for BeOS. They sounded upset about dropping BeOS, but realistic about their business, and it is hard to fault that sort of thinking. Like they said,

When we first created Moho for BeOS, we saw a great deal of potential for multimedia artists. Now however, we can’t imagine why an animator would choose this OS. It seems that anyone doing animation on BeOS must be putting animation as a second priority behind choosing an operating system.

I would love to say that we should all hold on, and that bone/opengl/r6 will be released soon, and we can get back up to speed. But at this point, Be has let things degrade so far that I am not sure it’s possible to fix it. Oh well. I hope they try, and even more so, I hope they succeed.
