Wait. They support the AmigaOS! :) And they did that even before all the A1 stuff, AFAIK. Also, yes, Be did sell its assets to Palm, but it is also true that YellowTab ( licensed the source-code from Palm and will be releasing Zeta (BeOS R6) in January of February. Not to mention the OSS projects cloning it (I am the OpenBFS Team Lead for the OpenBeOS project). Anyway, I repeat: I know (or I think that I know) what the problem is with the BeOS version and I offered to help for free. That's not the kind of stuff you would count as expenses on your budget. :P :) -Bruno
