Original OSNews Interviews BeOS (and Haiku) has a very powerful filesystem, thanks mostly to its extensive use of attributes and live queries to search through these attributes. In order to access these powerful features over a network, you need a network file system that also supports attributes and queries - cue BeServed, Kevin Musick's network file system. A few weeks ago, the code to BeServed was donated to the Haiku project as open source under a MIT license, so HaikuNews and OSNews decided to interview Kevin Musick together. In addition, Haiku launched the Haiku Code Drive 2008.

I am going to go load this on my 8500 Mac for old times sake. There is a great deal of BeOS applications begging to be released in some OSS fashion. Thanks to the author for giving the code to the community. I always enjoyed it back in the day

BeServed doesn't run under PowerPC. I started porting it, but the code assumed all clients were little endian and I didn't get a chance to fix all the bugs. This was in like 2001 or 2002 or so.
