The years I spent using BeOS daily were marked by some of the most harmonious computer days and weeks of my life. It wasn’t because BeOS was perfect, but it was so fresh and had so many great new ideas. The user community was composed of a lot of people unsatisfied with the state of computing, and looking for something more inspiring. I don’t know if I personally found inspiration in BeOS, but I got at least a little bit of joy out of knowing it existed.

Anyway, here’s thinking of you, BeOS… the second computer operating system that refuses to die… and the first in my heart! Hahaha, umm.
