"Linux and BeOS are both getting close to 10 years old, but
they have very different histories and are quite different
products. The one thing they have in common is they are both
alternative operating systems. Rather than looking at them as
competitors, let's explore how they can work together to satisfy
the needs of a greater audience."
"Linux has proven itself to be the fastest-growing server
operating system. Its reliability and performance per dollar have
helped it get there. Any objective viewing shows Linux as the best
choice in the web server world, and its support of the SMB, IPX and
Appletalk protocols makes it an excellent choice as a file and
print server in a mixed environment...."
"Enter BeOS, an operating system designed to be running on a
workstation. BeOS is not multi-user, but it is multi-tasking. To
make matters even more interesting, the GUI is part of the
operating system, rather than being an add-on like X is with
UNIX/Linux or Microsoft Windows is on MS-DOS."
