As I stated on my first post, i came back because I was one of those random BeOS users from the old times, and took some time this weekend in my parent’s place looking for the old CDs from magazines.
It was a CD released with PcActual Magazine dated in May 2000 (Magazine no.45)
Just run that cd again with success and tried to install
After digging it on the net (i dont have the printed magazines anymore), i found the magazine online here:
From page 98 to page 102 it analyzed Beos 5 ( “Beos 5, a serious toy , reviewed”).
Unfortunately, it’s only available as image, so not google translatable, but i found it fun to share, anyway.
Here’s a screenshot of my BeOS install being hosted by ReactOS running in VirtualBox.
Hi! Very nice topic. I got to know BeOS through Zeta… and also thanks to a Spanish magazine. I do not remember the name but the magazine “Hackers” (I think) included a Zeta live CD once. The article also mentioned BeOS and Haiku. In fact, I still have that magazine too. I have included a picture of it below:
Tried and tried to capture what I have, don’t have a digital camera, only have a flip-phone, the camera doesn’t take close-ups at all, way too blurry.
- BeOS 5 Pro Edition (x86 and PowerPC) by GobeSoftware, dated 2000.
- The BeOS Bible (916 pages), covers version R4 of BeOS on Intel/PowerPC, dated 1999.
Sure I had an older version at some point, could not find anything.
