Stillbirth BeOS 5.1?

Before the operating system manufacturer Be von was bought up by the PDA manufacturer Palm, they continued to work on a new version of BeOS. On the part of Palm, however, there is no longer any interest in marketing this operating system, so that technical support or further developments have to be avoided to a large extent.

Palm wants the technical know-how of the developers to flow into the in-house PDA operating system PalmOS instead. Nevertheless, the release of BeOS 5.1 would be for many fans because of the numerous innovations, such as support for OpenGL hardware, a new network stack, new printer and USB drivers, an XML kit and various 'decors' , Window designs a reason to be happy. But these innovations also have their price, because due to the numerous changes to the kernel, some applications will no longer work correctly.

An unofficial download link is already making the rounds through the network, Whether this is the finished version 5.1 is still in the stars. This link doesn't seem to bother Palm so far. Some screenshots have already been taken so that you can get an impression in advance.
