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.

Thank you for a great article.

And also thanks must go to the Haiku team, yes I am impressed!

I love Linux on the server, but I'm not convinced yet to run it on my desktop. I envision a future where Haiku machines run on the desktop, connecting to Linux and Apple Xserve servers :-) Maybe some Microsoft machines would be allowed for old people who cannot swith to the newer systems ;-)
