BeOS for Power Mac
Hardware Requirements


OK, you don't support the BeOS on it, but what would happen if I tried to run the BeOS on a 601 machine? Does it just not do anything, does it run unreliably, or does it spectacularly toast the motherboard and pop it out the disk drive slot?

First, you won't be able to install the BeOS onto such a system. But even if you could, it wouldn't run. The BeOS simply will not work on these systems. There is a lot of engineering work between the BeOS and 601-based systems, and right now if it would even start loading (which it won't), it would crash immediately.

Really, we're not making this up while secretly telling our friends how to run the BeOS on their 7200s!

<< Will the BeOS ever support PCI-based 601 systems, like the 7200?  Is the BeOS compatible with a 7500 upgraded to a 604?  >>
