Even though Be's focus shifted to a version of BeOS specially adapted for Internet Appliances, called 'BeIA', followed by Palm buying Be's IP, BeOS for desktops is far from being dead - at least in the eyes of its users. The site BeBits provides extensive listings of BeOS software available for download. The Haiku (former OpenBeOS) project aims at creating an open-source replica of BeOS R5 and then take it from there. yellowTab apparently has secured some rights to BeOS and is working on its own R6 successor named Zeta. Other websites worth checking out are BeGroovy, IsComputerOn, Haiku News (former BeOSJournal), and BeFAQs - these sites also provide numerous further links.
I no longer actively work on BeOS - a fact reinforced by the loss of a working BeOS installation - but nonetheless: here are the BeOS programs I had my hands in.
