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.

Although with only 32MB RAM, I had to run the old media_server rather then the stock R5 one...


That's cool, I never even knew that option existed!

The P100 was fast enough to decode the MP3 stream with the stock media_server, although I did tweak the bootscript a bit to remove Tracker, Deskbar, and a few other superfluous things like the print_server (it mainly ran headless, controlled via telnet).
