    PC/OS - the BeOS of the Linux world

    ,----[ Quote ]
    | PC/OS is a recent new entry into the Linux distribution world. Based on
    | Ubuntu, it uses Xfce as its default desktop and offers a variety of
    | user-friendly enhancements, such as out-of-the-box support for popular
    | multimedia codecs. It also includes a collection of software development
    | tools. Although PC/OS has yet to be added to the DistroWatch.com's
    | distribution database, we offer this reader-contributed review for the
    | benefit of those visitors who enjoy evaluating emerging distributions.

    |
    | PC/OS has become my distribution of choice. Not only for its nostalgic
    | journey to the BeOS era, but because, as it advertises, everything worked out
    | of box. I have installed it on four systems, two laptops and two desktop
    | systems, and it works great. If you are a new Linux user, I highly recommend
    | it. If you are a seasoned Linux user, give it a try. If you are a refugee
    | from BeOS, it's definitely worth a look. PC/OS has a bright future. If it
    | makes it past a year we may see it as a DistroWatch #1 pick. The developer is
    | a nice guy, very technical and very eager to help if you have problems, and
    | he understands the desktop user's needs. My experiences with PC/OS have been
    | very positive and, as always, I encourage you to participate not only in this
    | distribution but in Linux and open source in general. Overall, PC/OS is the
    | best $1.00 I have ever spent.

    | Currently, Zebuntu is nothing else but a rebranded, BeOS-themed XFCE variant
    | of Ubuntu 7.10, with a new control panel (MAGIC). Now what?

    Zebuntu Debuts

    ,----[ Quote ]
    | "Our goal is to use BlueEyedOS to offer a new platform for our former Zeta
    | customers. In the future, Zeta, BeOS, as well as any future Haiku
    | applications, will run natively on Zebuntu. This also offers a distinct
    | advantage for developers for these platforms; they can use Zebuntu to develop
    | for their platforms while utilising the performance and versatility of
    | Linux." In other words, run BeOS applications on Linux. ┬* ┬* ┬*

    | Nachdem intern die Beta 1 viel Erfolg hatte steht nun die Beta 2 zum Download
    | bereit.
    |
    | Viele neue Features und Bugfixes wurden in Beta 2 eingef├╝gt und so kann es
    | nun von einer breiten ├ľffentlichkeit getestet werden. Es handelt sich dabei
    | um ein etwa 1GB grosses DVD ISO welches als LiveSystem mit
    | Installationsfunktion verwendet werden kann. ┬* ┬*

    OpenBeOS: It's Alive and Well

    | Yes, Haiku has a lot to offer to those looking for some ripe, fresh
    | development ground within the open source community. And considering
    | the use of the easy to abide by MIT License, it does have some
    | possibilities once the OS has been given a chance to mature some.
    |
    | I suppose you might be able to argue that at the end of the day,
    | Haiku is an OS for the no-nonsense minimalist in mind.
