[REBOL] Re: "BeOS" and Palm

From: kenneth:nwinet at: 18-Aug-2001 1:38

> Palm has already stated they do not plan to continue developing the BeOS.
A very prudent statement considering they are a $2B company vs. a $330B company. But even at that, $2B gives them much deeper pockets than Be ever had. So even though the obvious reason for the purchase was to gain multimedia capabilities, is it possible by any stretch of the imagination, that they would put some effort into marketing BeOS on the desktop? Just my idealistic hope that technical excellence could one day overcome market realities. Ken.
