Buy Now!

October 15th, 2001

Since there seem to be so many ex-BeOS users moving to MacOS X, I think I’ll start bringing the old BeOS screensavers* over to X.

Here’s my first one: Buy Now, which you can find in my new BeOS Screensaver Pack. (Buy Now was originally written by Ficus Kirkpatrick in 1999 and shipped as part of beOS R5.) Remember, Buy Now — a software product is only as good as it is lucrative!

*The rest of them, anyway. Apple has already burgled the classic BeOS Icons screensaver as part of their standard X distribution.
