|When was the last time you saw a truly new operating system? Apple's 'new' OS/8 looks
like the first aid section at the drug store... and if you've ever exited Windows
then you've seen Bill's shaking-hands on a walker still trying to figure out what
day it will be after December 31, 1999. Scary.
__ But you ask what we're doing talking about operating systems? We're supposed to be designers, right? Of course if you've seen BE in action then you know there there is hope for the computing world -- more importantly the computing world that needs to render, animate or build multimedia.
__ BE is the first ray of light to enter the OS world for a long time. BE's promise is a cross platform, nose-bleed speed, revolutionary new operating system for Macintosh and clone systems as well as Intel Pentium, Pentium Pro and Pentium II based systems. It speaks directly to the machine and is hungry for high-end graphics, multimedia, multithreading and multiprocessing. It's going to deliver Silicon Graphics performance on the consumer level desktop, and you can bet we're excited.
__ Leading the pack of frenzied developers is O'Reilly Associates. Their new "BE Developer's Guide" is the current state-of-the-art (Official) reference manual for BeOS. Now, high-end multimedia developers can open the hood for direct access to the internals of this awesome new OS.
__ The BE Developer's Guide includes everything you need, including a CD-ROM with the entire BE OS and developers tool kit.
__ This is actually Volume One of a two part kit (Be Developer's Guide) which is premiering this fall. It covers the essential development kits: the App Kit, the Storage Kit, the Interface Kit, the Kernel Kit, and the Support Kit.
__ If you've ever dreamed of getting your hands dirty on the next horizon in operating systems, you cannot even begin without O'Reilly's BE Developers Guide. It's written by the BE Development team... and the one you'll need. Period.
