Multimedia, AV "Firefly" is the best Joss Whedon work to date, but I always try to give the benefit of the doubt on new sci-fi shows. So tonight, as I was watching "Dollhouse" on TV with my ex-Be engineer husband, JBQ (currently at Android, along with many other ex-Be engineers), I noticed something familiar at the Dollhouse supervisor's computer screen. It seems that the Dollhouse's business runs on... BeOS. Click in for some snapshots of the scene. Update: mikesum32 tells us that they used a screenshot of BeOS full screen! In the screenshot BeShare and 'Jabber for BeOS' were open. I recognize quite a few names in their lists (some of them are OSNews readers to this day), so congrats for those who made it to... TV!

just to see what wikipedia had, i followed the above link... and although the content is 'ok' .. i must say that they have a horrible screenshot. For starters they should have the Deskbar in the default location, and why not Soundplay over CL-Amp. (personal pref, though SP is a more Be-like app, and the first mp3 player to play backwards) What happened to all the good demo apps too, i mean, open up some Cube or Chart .. maybe even Net+ ... something... i would take the one used by the TV show over the one from wikipedia any day.

oh well

sorry if I wasn't clear

the wikipedia screenshot has the Deskbar in the mac style layout, instead of the default top/right corner


also as a "back on topic" note, it seems that the dollhouse screenshot is of Dano (at least it has boneyard)
