Question for the older BeOS fans here that may know!
I was looking through the preflets in Dan0 for inspiration, and noticed a screensaver I can’t believe I never saw before until now, which is labelled VoteNow.
And oddly enough (and maybe it’s why I never noticed), the usual “Buy Now” of course is still in the screensaver set, still flashing it’s usual message, (and I had read the history of ‘Buy Now’), but what was Vote Now?
It flashes “Vote Now” in the same fashion as “Buy Now”. Was this related to a decision for BeIA? Was it to save the company? Was it just a joke? Was it for US elections? Why was it there and in the ‘public service message’ screensaver as ‘a friendly reminder’?
Every piece in every OS has an anecdote behind it usually (like Sosumi on the Mac), so I’d Be (pun intended) interested in finding out more about it from those who may know.
Stories? Theories? Speculations?
