Reports that the next version of Mac OS X (10.3 aka Panther) will feature a new file system format akin to BeOS's file system.

Previously, it was reported that Dominic Giampaolo, a BeOS engineer was employed by Apple approximately one year ago, and it is presumed that his experience with BeOS's journaled file-system was applied towards Apple's current implementation of Journaling in Mac OS X. If this newest rumor is true, more BeOS file-system features may find their way into Mac OS X.

This 2001 article by Scot Hacker entitled "Tales of a BeOS Refugee", gives one experienced BeOS user's perspective on the advantages of the BeOS file system.

MacBidouille also claims that Mac OS X 10.3 will feature significant performance boosts over 10.2.

I loved BeOS. It was really an awesome OS with lots of potential. If they're truly going to be building in some BeOS features, this will be awesome!

BeOS was nice but fundamentally flawed in that it was written in a much higher level language (C++) than was OpenStep (Objective C). Objective C-derived Cocoa has much more growth headroom and therefore better code optimization and speed potential, as well as portability.
