Hail Linux, king of the OS.

4-0 out of 5 stars A neat, fast and efficient operating system, but still young
BeOS is one of those products that is superior in so many ways that you just have to hope that it hangs on and eventually becomes mainstream.In this time of hype and excitement over Linux, BeOS has been somewhat glossedover, probably because it doesn't subscribe to the 'Open Source' movementcurrently in vogue.This is too bad, for BeOS really is agem.5-0 out of 5 stars Say you... Say Be.
Where do I start? If your tired of "bloatware" and /or unfulfilled promises - Be is for you. If you would like to use your OS right out the box without descending into configuration H#LL (but have theoption to :-)) - Be is for YOU. If you are a developer and want to bring a'real' OS to the masses - Be is for YOU. If I were Popeye, Be would bespinach and the Be Bible is a recipe book that tells me all the ways I canprepare my spinach to woop up on Brutus! Get it and DARE TO BE DIFFERENT! ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars BeOS is incredible!
BeOS is easily the most advanced operating system available today.It is as easy to use as MacOS or Windows, while at the same time it has the power and stability of Linux.If you don't believe me, give it a try.I'm surethat you will be hooked once you see how fast and responsive your computerreally can be.

5-0 out of 5 stars This OS Rules!!!

5-0 out of 5 stars This is GREAT!
I have the BeOS 5 Pro, and I can tell anyone who is unsure of this system that it rocks. I installed the free version on my friends computer just as a test, and it improved his response by at least 150%! IT took only 12 seconds to boot, compared to windows 98 at 97 seconds, and just learning where everything is was easy. 5-0 out of 5 stars What sliced bread did for breakfast, this does for your PC
The Be operating system is fantastic!It is fast and resilient to crashing.It has protected multitasking, unlike Windows.It has 64-bit file logging system, which is far superior to anything offered by themicrosoft corporation.You can run multiple sound tracks and theirrespective movies all at the same time.It boots up in a matter of a fewseconds, instead of the 60-90 seconds windows takes.. It even supports aDVORAK keyboard, which is, by the way a much better keyboard than QWERTY. I admit, it does look a lot like MacOS, but Jean-Louis Gasee (CEO) is anex-mac engineer.It also does not have many games for it, but there is noshortage of shareware.The company employees are fun and helpful people. I cannot praise this enough!Abandon Windows!Spit on a bust of W. H.Gates III!Trumpet in a new era of speed and ease for your computer!

4-0 out of 5 stars What version of Gobe Productive
BeOS operating system is great.Fastest thing on the planet but to replce win98 it needs a MS Office like.It comes with Gobe Productive but does not state the version which is critical as MS Word documents are recognizedby vs 2 and not 1.1 ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars Best OS I've ever used...
I've used various Windows OS for the past 10 years, various Linux for the past 2, and played around with Mac some. BeOS is not just different, but clearly superior in many ways. Part of the reason why is that BeOS doesn't run on top of DOS, as Windows did until recent years, and it doesn't run on top of Unix, like Linux and Mac OS X. BeOS instead started with a clean paper and wrote code to do the various jobs required of a modern OS in the most efficient way possible. Additionally, BeOS uses 'pervasive multithreading' allowing commands to execute much more rapidly. The combined result is that the system is much less bloated, and truly is faster than anything I've ever seen. BeOS running on a Celeron 900 Mhz machine is MUCH faster than Win XP or Mac OS X on a 2 gigahertz machine, simply because the code is written so much more cleanly. I had difficulty believing it myself, until I installed BeOS on my own 900 Mhz machine. The performance difference between BeOS and Windows is truly like night and day. Quite a bit comes with the OS itself. There are browsers (their own, NetPositive, plus Mozilla), CD burners and players, utilities, and applications. Gobe Productive is a software suite written for BeOS which is comparable to Microsoft Office, with a word processor, spreadsheet, presentation program etc. The BeOS Bible is over 900 pages of hints, documentation, and instructions on how to set up the OS and use it.If there is a downside, it is that (1) BeOS doesn't have drivers for every piece of hardware in existence, although it natively supports a pretty wide range. Check the Hardware Matrix at [frizbe website]to see if your hardware has been tested yet. (2) There isn't a lot of software available at the moment in stores. However, there is an active BeOS user community with quite a lot of software, drivers, and assistance online. Try [begroovy, or bebits websites] to see what is available, and links to other BeOS related sites. Just think, an entire OS, PLUS an office suite PLUS the most comprehensive manual you are likely to ever see, all for the price of a game.Ron

5-0 out of 5 stars The Best of the Bests...
One year ago I try for first time the BeOS4.0 and in that moment I knew that this it is the operating system for PCs of the future, it is stable and faster that other popular OS ;-), in that moment the BeOS had theinconvenience that it didn't have a wide variety of driversfor thedifferent peripherals of the computer. At this time I installed the newversion 4.5 and I find that it is spectacular, it possess more driverssupport and it continues beingstable and faster...

5-0 out of 5 stars FAST, ROCK SOLID, FUN
This Bundle is well worth the money. The BeOS Bible is a great referance for the OS. The Gobe Productive Office suite is also a must have. The BeOS is a very fast and reliable OS. It has a stylish and easy to use interfacesimmilar to MacOS. Your computer will run Multimedia applications fasterthan you thought possible. The BeOS is still responsive to your everycommand even while the PC is working on the most complex tasks. ADDED BONUSThe BeOS comes with the software to duel boot windows and BeOS. ... Read more
