BeOS & Derivatives Before the BeOS ever made it to x86, it had already spent some time on PowerPC, but the die-hard fans will know that BeOS was actually written and designed for a very different, short-lived processor: the AT&T Hobbit. While a PowerPC BeBox is already quite rare, the Hobbit BeBox was never sold, and only existed in the form of a number of prototypes. Imagine our surprise when we found out that Cameron Mac Millan, former Be employee, sold one of his two Hobbit BeBoxen on eBay a few days ago.

Since we're on the subject of BeOS, how close is Haiku to replicating what BeOS could do? I just wonder as it seems that playing six videos on a rotating cube would still be difficult on most systems today. Thats the one thing I wish about Linux. I wish it had better video/sound support. Even today commercial systems are still in use at TV stations that are running BeOS for production work.
