BeOS 5 Personal Edition

Sign in to follow this  


A recent ArsTechnica entry about Zeta brought back memories of BeOS, and my mostly failed attempts to get it running on the hardware I had access to. Hey! I've got a "new" PC, might it be compatible? Most assuraddly so. Cool. Of course, it's the one hooked up to my Tempest cabinet, so the monitor is rotated, which makes it a little difficult to use. But it's BeOS!

We evaluated BeOS back at the first dotcom I worked at circa 1998 or so. It actually was slower than I thought it would be on Pentium II 200 class hardware.


It definitely wasn't as fast as the AmigaDOS kernel, an OS it was often compared with.
