As a passionate BeOS fan I have mixed feelings about JLG. I still can't forgive, that he decided not to open source of at least some important parts of BeOS back in 2001 (not just Deskbar and Tracker). It would've helped OpenBeOS immensely to reach usable state faster. OpenBe could've been a major player in open-source multimedia desktop OS sector for seven or ten years by now.

Yes I'm a little bit bitter. Props to him for showing up at Google Talks in 2007 to support Haiku, though.
