I don't think you'll be terribly surprised.
Perhaps you want to know the deep, dark, story behind Buy Now? Here it is:
Lets get this straight.
BUY NOW was my idea.
The kernal was crashing a lot, beos was crashing a lot b4 some big trade show. I said to Ficus, we need a program that will launch when ever some thing goes totaly wrong and we can't finish the demo. I said to Ficus that program should just flash BUY NOW. When I got back to the office that night, all the machines in the lab were running the BUY NOW program. The screen saver came later. For sad stories, look to executive/management decisions.
Remember, Buy Now: your hard work is only as valuable as it is lucrative!
