Where can I find BeOS?

  1. Hello,

    Well since I'm a total n00b and want to have experience with every OS I can, I'd like to get BeOS, somehow. Where can I download it from? I was surfing BeBits, but I really don't know what to download. Found BeOS Personal Edition for download, but it had all this "download R5" and whatnot. Is it very big? If so I might have to get on CD and not download it...:(

    Anyway, thanks in advance for any help any of you may lend.

    Eh? Found a broken link? Try this: http://www.bebits.com/app/2680
    PE (Personal Edition) isn't very big, it's 43M.
    You might find it from eBay.

    So I should just download "BeOS R5 Personal Edition for Windows"? Is that it?

    And is there an AMD version?

    Yes, that's it. For AMD XP/MP CPUs, check the instructions from BeBits Wiki.
