What if Apple choose BeOS instead!?

In 1984, Apple was one of the most expensive consumer computers that you could get. With almost same specifications as Amiga 1000 and the way more cheaper Atari ST520 that came in 1985, it would seem that these would win. But the history isn’t compatible with that, so Apple won the battle and moved onto PowerPC and then Intel x86. But on the road to the popularity they have today, BeOS was something that Apple was thinking of getting. But the BeOS team denied it from happening. Read on…

BeOS could have been the iOS today
However, when the Apple smartphone project started, then the key decision was the software choice. And BeOS was in fact a choice that Apple did want at some point. On mondaynote website, they have brought up the topic etc!

..an Apple employee and former Be engineer offered Palm Inc. $800K for a BeOS “code dump” - just the code, no support, no royalties. The engineer was highly respected for his skill in mating software to unfamiliar hardware; BeOS was a small, light operating system; draw your own conclusion… Palm, which had purchased Be a few years before that, turned him down.

Great operating system engineers knows how precious their product is for sure. Thats why AmigaOS 4, MorphOS and Haiku (BeOS Open Source) is still here evolving on their own. I am pretty sure that the market is made for more than two operating system giants for sure.
