BeOS & Derivatives After eight years of hard work, the day has finally arrived. Today, September 14, the Haiku project has released its very first alpha release. With the goal of recreating one of the most beloved operating systems in history, the BeOS, they took on no small task, but it seems as if everything is finally starting to come together. Let's talk about the history of the BeOS, where Haiku comes from, and what the Alpha is like.

one of the sad things about BeOS was that it never had a chance to shine. Was it going to reign on the bebox? be part of macos x? live on the mac clones? x86 as the mediaOS? BeIA? PalmOS? No, none of those dreams were fulfilled.

Now after 8 years we have a chance to go back to those old dreams and come up with some new ones.
