BeOS R5, Personal vs. Professional
Posted on: 06/05/2000 12:48 PM

Ars Technica has a look at BeOS R5 Personal and Professional. He didn't see much of an improvement over R4.5. One thing that did irritate the BeOS faithful was the fact that they removed OpenGL support from R5. The reasoning was that they were in the midst of rewriting it, and they didn't want to release something incomplete or waste time updating the old OpenGL drivers.
When turning to compare the two versions to one another, things get a little trick. It's hard to beat free. True, you are paying for your internet connection, but that's not very much compared to the price of R5 pro. Naturally, this is assuming that you don't run into problems. If you do have problems, how much is your time worth to you?
