BeOS & Derivatives Back when it was becoming clear that the time of the BeOS had come and gone, enthusiasts immediately set up the OpenBeOS project, an attempt to recreate the Be operating system from scratch, using a MIT-like license. The project faced difficult odds, and numerous times progress seemed quite slow. Still, persistence pays off, and the first alpha release is drawing ever closer. We decided to take a look at where Haiku currently stands.

Haiku keeps getting better and better, God willing it'll be running full time on my Aspire One once it hits Alpha.


No need to wait; in spite of its pre-alpha status, Haiku runs quite well on my Aspire One, with native support for video, audio and ethernet.

You can try it booting from a USB to see if your specific model will boot/work.

From linux, you can use:

dd bs=1024 if=haiku.image of=/dev/sda

In windows, you can follow...

...or simply use:

Pre-alpha images with some apps (Firefox, Vision irc client, Wonderbrush image editor, Pe programming editor, VLC, etc.) are available from:
