Jay "BeOS Boy" Adair, our web monkey and resident BeOS fanatic, sends word that a free version of the next release of the "multimedia operating system" BeOS will be available, as well as the normal full commercial release.

The freebie version will weigh in at a modest 40-60Mb, and you will even be able to run it on a Windows system without having to mess around with partitions. Watch for it appearing in the next couple of months...

For the full scoop, check the free BeOS page. Check our recent BeOS gaming article for more information about the most important aspect of BeOS - playing games on it!
