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 In the second half of the '90s, Apple was looking for a replacement for its heavily outdated Mac OS, after several failed attempts at developing its own - it came down to Steve Jobs NeXT, or BeOS.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.

I have, I've just generally avoided Be-related posts because I didn't understand the appeal. Serves me right for giving the topic a chance, I guess. It's just so painful to see a sub-group of the obscure OS fandom not learn from their forerunners. Can't Be people see the Amiga users and realise how crazy they must sound to everyone else? ;)
