Submitted News

TottalyBe, which I don’t think we’ve formally greeted to the BeOS website community yet - Maverick, the maintainer of the former BeOS Central, has returned to the community with this new news site - welcome back! :D

Ah-hem, back on topic - TotallyBe noted that the newest OpenBeOS newsletter (#7) is now online. I find that these articles are good reads, and reminiscent of Be’s pre-IPO newsletters (likely on purpose ;) ).

Ignosecond, hehe, especially rings home, as a couple of days ago I experienced that very intensive moment as I realized my keys were in my other pants at the moment my apartment door shut, locked of course. :P

Palm’s 32-bit OS plans

Scottmc alerted our forum members to a couple of articles concerning Palm and their plans for the use of Be’s IP as well as the engineers that Palm has now working for them. The first article is an interview with David Nagel at the Software Development Times. The second article is from OS Opinion and talks of Palm releasing a 32-bit OS based off of the BeOS/IA code base to be released in the second half of 2002. Keep in mind that this is just speculation.

What this means for the BeUnited initative is still anyone’s guess.

Lot’s of catching up to do

Okay, so I’ve been unable to post until now. I’ll post a few items up that I can remember off the top of my head… if you want to see BeGroovy active again, start sending me some news to post (to my address linked above).

Scott Hacker, author of the BeOS Bible fame, has recently written an article entitled MacOSX Week: Tales of a BeOS Refugee, for OS News during their Mac OSX week. It’s a very good, and long, read. The summary for myself personally is that I’ll be still waiting for something to happen on the BeOS front.

So during our downtime, it seems, that some people have had varied success with Athlon XP boards and BeOS. There is some kernel patching in the works, and if you have an Athlon XP board, please help test the patch. You can catch up on that issue here.

And one last quick note, people are reporting that they have recieved their copies of Gobe Productive 3.0 for Windows. I only hope my wife bothers to send my copy to me where I’m at now. :P
