"Alternative operating system maker Be Inc. announced on Monday
[12/21] that it had signed a licensing deal with PC maker Compaq
Computer Corp. to incorporate a BeOS-based information
appliance platform, code-named Stinger, into the PC giant's
next-generation Internet products."
"While Compaq... does not guarantee it will eventually build
Stinger into its products, the deal is a major second step along a
new path for Be -- away from PCs and toward simpler information
"Stinger includes the core components of the BeOS as well as the
Opera browser, the ability to play video and audio streams, and
several application development services."
