BeOS 5.0 Personal Edition|
The BeOS media player can play a number of different file formats.
One of the strengths of BeOS is that it is designed and optimized
to handle multiple media streams.
These are a couple of the demo apps that ship with BeOS 5 PE.
Also, this screen shot shows the BeOS menu in "start menu" mode.
BeOS includes some nice, although simple, screen savers.
A number of aspects of the BeOS GUI are customizable including menu
behaviors, and the scroll bar appearance.
There is also a hidden trick that let's you change the title bar appearance.
If you hold down ctrl-alt-shift and open the Be Menu you will see an extra
"Window Decor" option that let's you select between BeOS, AmigaOS, MacOS
8, and Windows 9x appearances. Note though that even with these appearances
the titlebars still exhibit BeOS like behavior. (such as double clicking
the title bar minimizes instead of maximizes.)
