Multimedia, AV "Firefly" is the best Joss Whedon work to date, but I always try to give the benefit of the doubt on new sci-fi shows. So tonight, as I was watching "Dollhouse" on TV with my ex-Be engineer husband, JBQ (currently at Android, along with many other ex-Be engineers), I noticed something familiar at the Dollhouse supervisor's computer screen. It seems that the Dollhouse's business runs on... BeOS. Click in for some snapshots of the scene. Update: mikesum32 tells us that they used a screenshot of BeOS full screen! In the screenshot BeShare and 'Jabber for BeOS' were open. I recognize quite a few names in their lists (some of them are OSNews readers to this day), so congrats for those who made it to... TV!

Definitely, this is BeOS. Nice! I was impressed by BeOS back in time. That was many years ago. I even thought it will be a real alternative for my Windows 98 workstation back in time... But then, everything gets complicated and there were no option - Open Source and GNU/Linux. Still, I hope, we will have some good feedback from Haiku guys one day.

Anyway, it's good to see BeOS in movie! :-)
