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.

BeOS the best?

I'm well aware that all operating systems have their advantages and disadvantages, but when Be arrived in 1996 (PowerPC) it could hardly be compared with NeXT which had been available since the late 80's (and which did multi user).

BeOS _was_ a good but not the best.
