BeOS & Derivatives Before the BeOS ever made it to x86, it had already spent some time on PowerPC, but the die-hard fans will know that BeOS was actually written and designed for a very different, short-lived processor: the AT&T Hobbit. While a PowerPC BeBox is already quite rare, the Hobbit BeBox was never sold, and only existed in the form of a number of prototypes. Imagine our surprise when we found out that Cameron Mac Millan, former Be employee, sold one of his two Hobbit BeBoxen on eBay a few days ago.

It's NOT BOXEN. Lurn 2 spe11!

One box, two or more boxes.


In the Be world, tradition has it that the plural of BeBox is BeBoxen.

Agreed. Thom is correct on this one. Just as the processor lights are known as "das blinken lights".
