Open source BeOS clone gives Be a righteous nudge

Author: JT Smith

The Register has a short item saying a new version of a clone of BeOS,
AtheOS, slipped out last week. "Be Inc. itself still hasn't given any indication that it
will release the source code to its much loved but moribund desktop OS, although
ten days ago we reported that the company registered domain names
openbeos.com, openbeos.org and openbeos.net last fall. Be's current cash squeeze
makes it less likely to want to devote staff resources to keep placing fresh mothballs
around the desktop OS code base, which last received a major update a year ago."
