BeOS is slick and cool. Unfortunatly, I am having trouble getting my hardware working properly. Plug and play my ass. At least it reboots quickly.

Using BeOS reminds me of being a Macaddict, when everything was shareware. Linux has spoiled me, I'm so used to everything, quality or crap, being free. As in beer.

Koolaid! Just got BeOSinstalled on my Thinkpad.

Except that it won't recognize my pcmcia network card, which I suppose makes it basically worthless to me.

I want to start playing around with GUI development to take a break from all the web design I do. But what environment to use? Tk means I can use python/perl, but it's ugly. KDE vs. gnome/gtk? Do I bite the bullet and get VisualC++ just to see how the other side lives? Maybe java/swing? yerg. so many choices. I miss my Apple II and getting to choose between LoRes and HiRes (ok, so you could also choose HiRes 2 and get more screen resolution) modes.
