Short Take: New BeOS draws a crowd

BeOS 5 is coming March 28, and 100,000 people have pre-registered for a free, downloadable version. The alternative to Windows and MacOS appeals to multimedia aficionados but failed to gain momentum because of limited application support. BeOS 5 Personal Edition is free from Be?s Web site, while a Pro version will be distributed to third parties for resale.
