"Be Incorporated appears to be gaining popularity as a way for computer makers to build an ultra-cheap computer without paying the 'Microsoft tax.'
This week, Microworkz and later iDot announced cheap machines running BeOS from Be Incorporated. America Online is discussing cross-marketing opportunities with Microworkz's iToaster, the company's Be box."
"When Be announced its IPO plans in May, it stated that one of its intentions was to push into the set-top box market, one of several areas Microsoft is hoping will be a home for its Windows CE operating system."
"Be has a powerful ally in the form of chip giant Intel, which took a 10 percent stake in Be in November 1998."
