BeOS & Derivatives Yesterday we reported on GoBE Productive Software (I knew that) returning to the market with a new version, backed by an Indian firm. In addition, the source article claimed GoBE Software was closing a deal on buying the BeOS operating system from what can only be Access. During the night (as in, CET) Bruce Hammond, CEO of GoBE Software, sent me an email with a few clarifications, and I have the permission to reprint that email below. Read more for the email.

RE: KDE = Mac

KDE4 is not mentioned in the article, KDE in general is though.

Also it only suggests that QT might be the toolkit in use for the Mac version by pointing out that having a working Linux KDE port would bring them close to a Mac version as well - and quess this could be said for *BSD as well...

RE[2]: KDE = Mac

You are right. KDE4 was not mentioned.

But wouldnt it be the rational decision to use the crossplattform KDE4 libs + qt. It would mean just one codebase for Linux,Mac and Win32 and it would be the most future proof decision.

Just my .02€ tho ..

KDE4 + QT = goodness. They would certainly be able to make a windows version in addition to Mac and Linux versions. The porting process has become relatively painless from what we've seen over at

KDE4 was not mentioned directly, no, but then we don't have a proper native port of KDE3. You can run KDE3 apps on MacOS, but it's really not a particularly valid Linux+Mac native development strategy .. unlike KDE4 which is.

Either way, it's a nice bit of news.
