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 switched to a combination of Mac and Linux. I still have a computer set up which can boot into BeOS, but I must admit I rarely do.

I still have a Dual 133 BeBox which works. I'm not sure what to do with it. Since I'm not short of money, I think I should hang on to it. It's perhaps one of the very few computers which *gain* value over time... It's not just a piece of computing history though, it's also a piece of personal history which is why I'm hesitant to let it go.
