I'm guessing you ran either 3.0 or 4.0. BeOS also had a pretty decent
GUI toolkit (or so I thought) and a nice media API. It wasn't just
the file system.
The network stacks sucks big time.
The PPC hardware is pretty much just PReP, so there wasn't really
anything that special about it other than it lacked L2 cache and it
had a nice case design with blinkin lights. That was the second
generation design though.
The first generation designed was based on Hobbits and DSP3210 chips.
It had a total of 5 CPUs.
