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.

I think that they would be better off working with Haiku and selling a 'commercialised version' which bundles their office suite and support with it. BeOS is all very nice but it is very dated, will require major investment - it would probably better off working with a clean slate and modern approaches to design and implementation than trying to hack around decisions made 8 years ago.

Of course Linux is soo modern... ;) do you know of any other OS which has more then a 100 users which is more modern than Linux, Windows or MacOS?

Sorry but I only know BeOS and please point us what is so old fashioned about it.
