Gobe Software

Gobe announced today that they are releasing Productive for windows and linux. This shouldn’t be a surprise for anyone who has been following the community for a while, but now its official, and being pushed. The best part is the word that the ports are based on the Be API’s, but built on windows using custom gobe libraries. This means that BeOS versions should be up to date and consistent in the forseeable future. The downside is that I can’t seem to find a mention of BeOS in the press release. Even worse, their FAQ says the following when asked about the beos version:

There are a lot of changes occurring with BeOS, and we do not know where they may be leading. After we have completed the Windows and Linux versions we will evaluate whether it is appropriate to complete the BeOS version.

At begroovy, we agree that the future of BeOS is shaky at best… But there are a group of us making a serious effort to save it, and if we are successful, it will be back stronger than ever. We like to think that Gobe will be there with bells on.
