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.

I remember doing that with a P75 and CL-AMP back in the day.

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

You mean "audio_server"? That was the pre "media_server" media server. It was left out of R5 intel, but dfor some reason still in R5 Powerpc...
