Engineered for peak performance: The BeOS®.

The BeOS® system architecture draws on several key advances in computer technology to be the ultimate cutting-edge operating system in the world.


We have designed BeOS with the capability to fluidly allow multi-tasking, with the ability to launch multiple applications within seconds, and allow them all to run concurrently with absolutely no-risk of system failure. In fact, you need never reboot your system.* BeOS will divide your computer's time efficiently and effectively, delivering to you responsive, dependable, and truly real multi-tasking, something that the other systems have always promised but never honestly delivered.

BeOS is also a completely multiprocessor-aware and compliant operating system. Working closely with vendors such as Intel, we have optimized our architecture to perform at superior speeds on Pentium(r) II processor- and PowerPC-based systems, to deliver maximum multimedia computing power.*

In addition, BeOS is available in English, Japanese, French and German. More languages will follow!
