Member since:

I still have my R4.5 CDs and BeOS Bible. I don't have anything it will install on, but I still have it.

Experiencing BeOS was bordering on a religious experience back then. It was doing things with my crappy hardware that no other operating system could do, and all the other desktop OS vendors started to try to emulate Be.

Unfortunately it's been kind of forgotten about. Microsoft kind of started that direction, and then they produced Vista and Windows 7. Apple added spotlight, and the Unix/Linux crowd could really careless.

It's kind of scary to think of what we could have had, isn't it?
