No, it's not. Be Inc. is facing financial problems as every .com company that
opened its shares is. Take a look at NaN (the guys that did Blender), for
BeOS is not dead.
I'm sorry for posting this to this list, specially that it's not directly
related to BeOS, but I think I should make it clear in case the guys at REBOL
Technologies started wondering if it's true.
