Apple may be denying reports that it will buy in operating system technology from Be Inc, but Mac clone maker Power Computing will offer the software vendor's BeOS on all its desktop models from the start of next year.
Texas-based Power Computing will continue to ship systems pre-loaded with Apple's own MacOS, but will also deliver BeOS on a free CD.
Power said it had no plans to move away from MacOS, and that its decision to offer BeOS was not connected to any plans Apple might have for its operating systems. A representative said the main reason to license BeOS was its multi-threaded capabilities, which were particularly suited to multimedia developers.
