Some news passed unnoticed: The OpenBeos bootloader for any Openfirmware computer PPC based, will be ready for the middle of October. You can read about it at: www.iscomputeron.com. Well, it is just in time for the launch of Pegasos II. Will we see Pegasos II with OpenBeos almost pretty soon?

|>Almost nothing* is done on the OBOS kernel so that system will not |

>(* according to the information available to the public)
Information available to the general public is apparantly wrong as the OBOS kernel was shown running at the last BeGeistert.
The OBOS kernel is based on NewOS.
What you may mean is the OBOS specific parts are hardly done which is rather more accurate.
>OpenBeOS does not have AmigaFFS support.
The OBOS *bootloader* does.
>It barely has a working BeFS implementation
>(last I looked there were so many serious bugs that even the primary developers don't use it).
Must have been a while ago as it's nearly reached stable now.
>It's nice to see that these Operating Systems are being dealth with but they have basically
>NO influence in the computer business anymore and thus NO public relations value.
The BeOS crowd is alive and well and still has considerable interest (read the recent slashdot story). Nobody knows the exact number but because it works on common PC hardware the number of users likely exceed the size of the entire Amiga community many times over.
(BeBits alone lists the number of downloads of FreeBe as over 1/4 of a million) ..and whats more it actually seems to be *growing*.
>You keep in your backhead that there are a bunch of Operating Systems that are ported
>to Pegasos but you also know that they are not even worth to throw an eye on.
You could have said that about Linux not that long ago.
>MorphOS, Linux, QNX are true interesting solutions for Pegasos. Sadly the real BeOS is
>not being ported to is.
That could change in the not too distant future...
