ZDNet reports on the cutbacks at Be.

On Tuesday, the operating-system maker slashed 27 jobs and watched its stock plunge 33 percent to close at 81 cents. The layoffs could amount to as much as 25 percent of Be’s work force, although the company wouldn’t specify.

Most of the cuts are in sales and marketing but also among the company’s engineering staff. Be will also close its European office in Paris and consolidate its European marketing efforts with its U.S. operations.

Menlo Park, Calif.-based Be is yet one of the latest causalities in the high-tech shakeout that has sent tens of thousands of technology workers packing this year. In the first three days of April, at least a half-dozen companies cut workers, citing hard times.

Be has their own press release here.
