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?


It's getting very, very close. Last time I tried it (one of the recent pre-alpha builds), it was already ahead of R5 in quite a few areas - the biggest rough spots I noticed were a few older applications that wouldn't run.
