A great archaelogical discovery! I really like and appreciate this kind of historical documents about Be… Please, keep sharing this kind of posts, could be also photos, articles, another videos, Internet Archive links or anything related with Be history! Thanks for sharing it, Akuji!
The PC clone organ bank, I always liked that quote!
Thanks for posting the link to that video Akuji.
caleb, i have something that will be of interest, but i’ll probably need to scan the BeBox GuideBook again, my old scans are alright for the text, but the pictures of the early Hobbit motherboards are pretty bad…
Awesome share! This is really cool!
@lorezan, I have similar feelings about the “PC clone organ bank”, mentioned also by JLG in Be Newsletters… https://www.haiku-os.org/legacy-docs/benewsletter/Issue1-18.html
Please, upload and share that scans of that early prototypes of dual AT&T Hobbit microprocessor based motherboards!

BeOS turns 25! On the 3rd of October 1995, Be Inc. presented BeBox & BeOS during the Agenda conference for the first time. The demo was successfully received with a standing ovation, for the 2nd time in Agenda’s history.
Sorry it took me a long time to make new scans and upload them.
Here are the pics of the prototype Hobbit motherboards from the BeBox GuideBook written by Fumihiko Shibata.

And to further celebrate the 25th birthday of the BeOS, you can watch the lecture by Steve Sakoman given during the BeOS Symposium held at the Osaka Electro-Communication University in January 2001.
Only archived versions of the low quality videos are available but all the slides are still on the original website.
