BeOS & Derivatives "Yesterday was our big day at Google, and we can say with a good degree of confidence that the Haiku Tech Talk was quite successful. We had a very special guest for this event: former Be Inc. CEO Jean Louis Gassée, not only joined us at Google for our presentation, but also gave a few words of support and encouragement for our project. It was great to have JLG's presence, as well as that of the several ex-Be engineers who showed up for the talk. We were also glad to see JAVA for BeOS developer Andrew Bachman join us for this special event. Take a look at the pictures from the presentation."

If you have another source of Mr. Gassée success maybe you can point them out. As I said before he did indeed create a great OS but failed in anything else in my opinion. Instead of selling the company for three times as much of the companies net worth he sold it for almost 6 times less. This alone shows that he wasn't thinking about the company, people who made this great OS or the investors who put in the money.

I'm all in favour for Haiku and I'm really looking forward to try the first version, but BEOS as the Company is dead and from reading about it you also know why.

Why do you think that BeOS would have been the better Mac OS X?
