I think it was really stupid for them to make their latest version of Be free for download. Really stupid! Thousands of people downloaded Be instead of buying it.
If you're going to be open-source, then be open-source. If you're going to sell a closed source product, may people pay for it! > > >
What they shoulda did was offer down loads of their BeOS Betas, or called the freely downloaded version a beta.
Other than that, I think Be didn't run on all the hardware that's out their. Now that MacOSX is out, I think Be has loast it's opportunity. MacOSX is going to take their place, as Corel is going to write apps for Mac instead of Be. Be is outta business anyway, right?
Maybe they can win in the hand-held space. But that's pretty competitive now.
