It may have been spurned by Apple, but Be is making a splash at Mac World anyway. It is showing off the Powermac version of its Be OS operating system, which recently shipped to developers and will be generally available on 31 March.
Software developed for any PowerPC version of Be OS - the existing Bebox version, the new Powermac or future PowerPC implementations - will be binary compatible, promised the company. Differences between the Bebox and Powermac releases mainly concern drivers for peripherals and are transparent to the developer.
Be is also holding a developers' conference in San Francisco from Saturday.
