Another Z bites the Dust

by @ Monday, February 25th, 2008. Filed under BlueEyed OS

Well, chalk one more ended post-BeOS project up for Bernd… Bernd and the Zebuntu Team decided to go different ways. This has some consequences to Zebuntu. The next Beta version will be shipped with a new icon and window theme. The development of the BeOS Compatibility Layer and integration therefor is now freezed. Not much […]

Zeta… I Mean Ubuntu… Zebuntu Beta 2

by @ Tuesday, February 19th, 2008. Filed under BlueEyed OS

Bernd is still at trying to help along the BeOS community in his own ways… This time in the form of a revived BlueEyedOS Linux kernel distro based on Ubuntu, aptly titled Zebuntu. To quote a quote from OSNews (the original announcement is in German): “Our goal is to use BlueEyedOS to offer a new […]

Good Bye … Blue Eyes

by @ Tuesday, February 1st, 2005. Filed under BlueEyed OS, Haiku

…Who could hang a name on you?… Oh, wait, that’s Ruby Tuesday. 😛 As many of you have probably already heard, it appears Blue Eyed OS is out of the OSBOS game. While it is sad to see a post-Be effort to die – the hidden silver lining, as told by Michael Olivera on the […]

BeZilla Tinderbox Finances

by @ Sunday, May 16th, 2004. Filed under BeZilla

Every great OS needs a great browser. BeOS had NetPositive, which pretty much has become a relic. You can see how it’s simple interface has influenced everything that has come out since, but it’s rendering engine just never kept up. Since then, the browser de jour has gone from Opera to Mozilla to Firefox. The […]

Open Tracker Now Compiles on BlueEyed OS

by @ Tuesday, May 4th, 2004. Filed under BlueEyed OS

BlueEyed OS reported on their website that OpenTracker now compiles and links. The first compiled version only ran for about one second before crashing due to a storage kit issue, never the less this is a huge milestone. Congratulations to the BlueEyed OS team.

Cash Offer to Fix Printing

by @ Thursday, March 4th, 2004. Filed under BeZilla

Since the first days of the Mozilla browser on BeOS printing has been an issue. Once again a cash offer has been raised to any developer who tackles the problem. According to a forum post over at the total cash bounty is up to $250 U.S. The only stipulations are that the fix must […]

BeZilla Donations

by @ Tuesday, March 2nd, 2004. Filed under BeZilla

The BeZilla development team is in need of a few donations from the community. The BeZilla tinder box is becoming more and more unreliable and has recently experienced some down time. The team is looking into possible upgrades for the server, including hardware donations from the community and paypal donations. On the same note, the […]

OpenBeOS acting like a duck!

by @ Thursday, December 4th, 2003. Filed under BeDevCity

Like the beautiful duck that appears to sit on the water, apparently doing nothing, we have watched OBOS, wondering if they were actually doing anything. While the duck kicks like the dickens to stay in one spot, the OBOS team is working hard behind the scenes, moving all the nitty-gritty inners of OBOS towards the […]

Darkwyrm hacks again!

by @ Tuesday, November 18th, 2003. Filed under BeDevCity

Darkwyrm is at it again! You just can’t keep a great programmer down. His update is more for the technically inclined and talks about BscrollBars and the like. You can read it here to get all the juicy details. Thanks again for all the hard work Darkwyrm.

Moving is tough

by @ Monday, November 10th, 2003. Filed under BeDevCity

Darkwyrm is learning the hard way that “moving is tough but getting settled is tougher!” Over at his site he let’s everyone know that he is still around but life has interrupted development for the moment. He also has his quick take on Zeta-RC1.

Darkwyrm on the move

by @ Wednesday, October 29th, 2003. Filed under BeDevCity

It appears that the notorious OBOS app_server developer Darkwyrm is on the move again. This time he and his family are moving to a nice roomy house a little ways north of his current location. We can only hope that the new enviornment will still be conducive to code development. With this move, he may […]

BeZilla and StripZilla

by @ Friday, July 11th, 2003. Filed under BeZilla

Paul sent in a request for your support. StripZilla has made some advances and patches in the graphics library that would be extremely useful to BeZilla itself. Paul has a survey up on the BeZilla site and would like your support helping convince StripZilla to merge their code into BeZilla in order to make BeZilla, […]

BlueEyed OS Updates

by @ Monday, April 14th, 2003. Filed under BlueEyed OS

BlueEyed OS has updated their site with a whole new look, and seemingly more content. In fact, according to their news page, they have a new iso on the way based on Knoppix which includes the latest version of their app server and such. It should be online as soon as they find hosting, followed […]


by @ Friday, April 4th, 2003. Filed under BlueEyed OS

According to some news recently posted to BeForever, B.E.OS (BlueEyedOS) will release a _version_ Real Soon Now (should be released in about 8 days, if the postings are correct). It is not an alpha or beta version (just a release to let people toy with), but it will autoconfigure hardware, run at 1024×768 res, and […] online

Just heard that has come online. It is a rather ambitious site maintained by arougthopher, which according to rumor is another name for “Paul”, who is a prominent BeZilla community member. It looks like the place to go for BeZilla news, questions, and downloads. Good luck to arougthopher in his quest to keep bezilla […]

BeNews back online.

by @ Thursday, September 6th, 2001. Filed under BeNews

BeNews is back up. Sorta. Their server has been down for 3 weeks, and it was determined that their perl interpreter was breaking under the load of their forums and commenting system. As such, they are both disabled until they can be fixed. Meanwhile, the begroovy servers, which were also down, still have no email […]

by @ Tuesday, June 12th, 2001. Filed under BeZilla

Just had it pointed out that as of June 7th, the mozilla release page has BeZilla 0.9.1 on it. I dont know if this is up to speed with the rest of the mozilla ports, or even if it’s news, but it is listed under the most recent version number. So, I think it is […]
