Yes,....thin air. A company with an obviously successful track record
which, unlike Be Inc., is still operational.
    Exactly *who* was it that was being offered the 'freebe' again?
If anything we should be happy that people with track records feel like
aligning with the project in some small way or even take an interest at all.
    How much interest has Be Inc. shown in the project?
    Other than a trifle of encouragement and a hearty pat on the bum,
how many ex Be engineers are *actively* programming
(spelled 'believing in the project') for openbeos?
    It's awefully quiet out there in the Be camp, even while NDAs are
considered. So what's wrong with a *BETTER* company picking up
the slack and showing some foresight?
