I saw the BeOS5 announcement and went straight to their site. I was
*extremely* disappointed that 1) they are only at 4.5 and still charge $80 for it, and
when 5.0 comes out, it *will not* be the full version. They are keeping some
stuff back without actually saying what stuff they're keeping back. I remember
when SGI didn't include NFS into their operating system and wanted to charge for
it to be an add-on. I hate to think what the bizheads are going to try and
sucker people into paying for. They need to give it away for free now on the
Web page and always charge for the Cd. Have they learned nothing?
