[REBOL] Re: Rebol and BeOS

From: carl:s:rebol at: 5-Dec-2002 9:35

Just a quick note on BeOS. The single biggest problem we have with better support for BeOS is its network API. The Be team did great things with multimedia, but they punted on a few areas of TCP/IP. We'd like to encourage the new BeOS systems team to consider improving in this area. If you need a detailed list, perhaps Holger could give you some input. Our best wishes to you on BeOS... -Carl At 03:44 PM 12/5/02 +0100, you wrote:
