Be my OS - a journey through BeOS5

BeOS 5.0 Pro Version

Contents: 1 Be-OS CD (Bootable).

1 Manual.

System requirements:

Pro Edition: Pentium-class computer; 32MB RAM; dedicated partition or hard

drive of 550MB or more.

Filetyping and the art of content management

"BeOS, has added two important pieces that no other OS appears to use. First, BeOS uses the MIME typing system. This defines super- and subtypes of files, as well as provides a mechanism for industry-wide definitions."

How does BeOS stack up to the competition?

I have tested BeOS and have made a few notes about how it stacks up to other OS's.

1.BeOS is a lot faster than any Windows OS.

2.Not much support for usb converted cable internet lines.

3. extremely active development

4.Once you get use to the navigation of BeOS it is pretty EZ to do stuff after.

I asume that after a year or two of active development BeOS will be very compatible and will be used as a replacement for Windows and Mac!!!
