The Nine Lives of Jean-LouisFrom Chuck Shotton, firstname.lastname@example.org:
What goes around comes around. Apple hosed Be in the next generation O/S licensing talks and now Be's in a position to return the favor.
It started this afternoon and I predict an avalanche by tomorrow. Everyone is figuring out how Be and the clone manufacturers can put together a platform to subvert Apple's monopoly. And it is an appealing vision.
I hope Jean-Louis spends one of his remaining nine corporate lives on making this happen.
I can tell you that if Metrowerks targets Latitude to the Be O/S, I'll recompile every piece of Mac source code I have to the Be platform. Long before it goes to Rhapsody.
