From V.E.R.A. -- Virtual Entity of Relevant Acronyms (February 2016) :

         Be Operating System (OS), "BeOS"

From The Free On-line Dictionary of Computing (30 December 2018) :

      The operating system originally designed
     to run on the BeBox microcomputer.  BeOS is good at both
     multitasking and real-time operation.  It has a bash
     command shell, with ports of many GNU programs by Be, Inc.
     It has a GUI front end (not X).  A C++ compiler is
     supplied with the machine, and there are rumours of other
     languages being ported in the future.
     BeOs eventually became used on the x86 and
     standard PPC.
     Be, Inc. went bankrupt in 1999, after releasing the last
     upgrade of BeOS (R5.0.3), and was sold to Palm.
     Several groups are currently (2003) attempting to create an R6
     version of the OS.  The most likely to succeed are Yellowtab
     and OpenBeOS, which is likely to be renamed.
