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.

that would be a good target. 80% of the hardware on all the various OEM versions is the same and almost all have linux drivers already available to "borrow" from. They have dual-core processors which BeOS can benefit from, and they have more limited resources to show what BeOS can do when other OSes slow the machine down.
