BeOS & Derivatives I don't think we've ever done this before, but we're going to promote a set of items currently up for bids on eBay. Why, you ask? Well, it's a complete collection of rare BeOS items - from t-shirts and software all the way up to a BeBox and a very rare BeIA web tablet. This is a goldmine for BeOS fans.

These things belong to the Computer History Museum. People who buy it, or the owner, should donate the tablet and/or the BeBox to the Museum.

I did so for my rare items.

They already have a BeBox and some of this donated my Michael "Minox" Paine. :-)

I saw the BeBox when I visited a few years ago.

That place (the CHM) was awesome.

Eugenia, would you happen to know if they have a copy of the October'97 "MacUser" magazine?... It came with a copy of BeOS PR1 attached. I'd be willing to donate 1 of the 2 unopened copies I kept.

I don't have the mag. If it's won, I can put you in contact with who wins the auction.
