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.

unless they do something unique, go online, go super-cross platform, something special, there's not much there. I loved the layout and function.. it performed well for being a small program. But it was neglected after BeOS... and again since the 3.0 release. Versions of documents are incompatible between releases and the last version available trashed even 3.0.3 - 3.0.4 docs, making recovery of documents a huge hassle. At this point, NeoOffice is my new favorite, a good port of OpenOffice.org. I'd like better Visio-like diagraming functions tied to data and programming, something Gobe Excelled at was quick diagrams and easy printing.

Unless they have something really good.. and ODF support, they're out of date now.
