BeOS r5 Family

Here's an interesting Operating System from Be Inc., the company that Microsoft illegally (see: msft complaint .pdf) forced out of business. Version 5 (r5) in many ways can be considered a PC version of the highly respected AmigaOS. Its multimedia capabilities are quite powerful, and it is so flexible that the OS can be installed onto either a x86-based (PC) or a PowerPC-based (Macintosh) computer.

In a world full of Windows... what we need are some rocks!
