Actually, its a glimpse of where Apple went wrong. The creative force
behind BeOS was at Apple and couldn't get anyone at Apple interested
in BeOS-like directions, so he went to form his own company. When the
Be computer as a piece of hardware didn't pan out and the OS was the
remaining IP of the company that had any promise of a future, Apple
still wasn't interested.
