BeOS


#1

Warning: this posting is only for those who are just as
interested in computers as they are in jewelry.

If you haven’t already heard, there is a new operating system
under development from a company called Be, Inc. It is the BeOS,
& it has a heavy emphasis on multi-media, graphics, all that sort
of thing. Those who are into computer-aided design of jewelry &c
might want to take a look at it. However, there are a couple of
caveats:

  1. It seems to be somewhere in between alpha & beta testing, so
    be prepared for lots of tinkering;

  2. It currently runs only on the PowerPC chip.

With all this in mind, head for http://www.be.com to find out
more.

I have no financial interest in this; I don’t even have the
right hardware to run BeOS. Just another thing to explore . . .
