The BeOS
Usage & Interface


It sounds as if the graphical Tracker isn't integral to the OS. If so, is it conceivable that others could design alternative GUIs to manipulate the BeOS?

This is certainly possible. In fact, Be has done it ourselves! The BeOS Tracker used to be the BeOS Browser; we completely re-wrote and replaced the old interface for the current release of the BeOS.

Different graphic front ends can certainly make the BeOS more accessible to some audiences. The main point here is that it can be done, and easily. The Tracker functionality is independent of the BeOS.
