BeOS & Derivatives When BeOS was still under active development at Be Inc, the project captured the hearts and minds of many who wanted to use a more advanced operating system. Though Be has since gone out of business, it hasn't stopped many of those same individuals from wanting to continue using the operating system. The fact that BeOS is no longer under active development has caused a handful of developers to take on the task of picking up where Be left off. Alan Wilder submitted the following editorial which analyzes the current status of three BeOS projects that are currently under development.

A short "goes gold" note is not the coverage that I would have expected for such a long anticipated release. If not a review (Doesn't the press get advance copies? The German c't print magazine had a 1.0 review in its last issue.), at least a sum-up of all the new features compared to Neo or R5 would have been helpful for those who haven't been following the late beta cycle closely.

Please, STOP *assuming* things and blah-blah-ing over here. I asked Bernd for a 1.0-final review copy for over a month now and he keeps saying "I will let you know when". I have access to their beta FTP site where I can get the latest beta ISO, but the deal is to send me a press version, but they still haven't.

Ah, that was the missing piece of information ;)
A short "we will have post an in-depth review as soon as we receive our reviewer's copy" note in the GM-article would have been nice, so that we OSNews readers know what to expect.

In general, my impression is that the news about 1.0 release hasn't reached most people yet - not only in the article linked by this news item I read about the "upcoming" 1.0 release.
