BeGroovy would like to wish Team Maui a heartfelt “Welcome!” Technically, the team members are not new to BeOS and Zeta but the team itself is. Here’s hoping they accomplish their mission “creating killer apps for BeOS + Zeta!” Here’s also hoping Team Maui comes up with an English version of their site as well, so us silly English speakin’ folks know what they are up to.
Every great OS needs a great browser. BeOS had NetPositive, which pretty much has become a relic. You can see how it’s simple interface has influenced everything that has come out since, but it’s rendering engine just never kept up. Since then, the browser de jour has gone from Opera to Mozilla to Firefox. The interesting thing there is that the last two on the list, and the current browser of choice, are both developed by the BeZilla project.
Edward Dore, of the BeZilla project, sent me a request to post an article here talking about the new tinderbox and the continued need for funding. A tinderbox is a computer that constantly builds the code and checks for errors, etc. This allows immediate response to new code and a check to see if anything has broken. It also allows for simple nightly builds. Seems like a great cause.. contribute if you can. There is a paypal button in this letter, so you should be able to contribute directly to the project. It has nothing to do with us, and goes directly to Edward and the BeZilla project. We have included it for your convenience. Please “Read More” for the entierety of the letter.
More news on the up coming WalterCon in issue 53 of the OpenBeOS newsletter, including a free T-shirt for those attending. The event is shaping up to be pretty interesting. In other news, the newsletter includes an article on replicants and a community communication piece. Head on over to OpenBeOS and give it a read.
Just released Version 2 beta 1 of BeOS LiveCD(XBEOX) contains the BeOS 5 Personal Edition with some extra drivers. It’s the first BeOS live CD since the 4.5 days in 1999. The LiveCD includes the “Installer” application so users can install the full BeOS PE on its own hard drive partition if needed. You can download the beta at Bebits.com.
