On September 2nd, Apple announced the purchase of Power Computing's
Macintosh business. Despite this event, Be honored the commitment made
by Power Computing to provide a free copy of the BeOS to
customers who purchased a Power Computing system after November 26, 1996.
This program has, regrettably, now closed. We offered it for 6 months, and offered a free download of the BeOS for Power Mac for 6 months also (a different six months, though). We feel that the BeOS is now of commercial quality, for those customers who's interests are well met by our features. You can find all the information you need about ordering your copy of the BeOS at:
