Apple It's no secret OSNews has a bit of a thing for the BeOS. I can only speak for myself, obviously, but relatively speaking, BeOS was the best operating system ever made. The man who started all this was Jean-Louis Gassee, former executive at Apple, who founded Be, Inc. in 1991. In the second half of the '90s, Apple was looking for a replacement for its heavily outdated Mac OS, after several failed attempts at developing its own - it came down to Steve Jobs NeXT, or BeOS. Be didn't make it, and Gassee is happier for it.

BeOS users appear to be crazy, therefore BeOS must attract crazy people, therefore, as a non-crazy person, I wish to distance myself from it.


... so said the Amiga 4000 user in 2011. C'mon, you're not less crazy than 90% of the readers here.

Posted from my BeOS R5-powered Dell Latitude C610. Proud to be crazy.

Bitter sarcasm, I assure you!

My A4000 electrocuted itself years ago.

...now I'm down to 3 A2000s and an A1000.
