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.

I totally love how you called Haiku "her" instead of "it" as usual most of us do. Except me. Hell, I'm even trying to make drawings of Haiku-tan with the variable success. A fraking geek? Maybe it's me. And I didn't really give a frak if I do.

After all those installs, tests and bug reports just don't forget to gently kiss her and give her a hug. And be nice, she is still little alpha, for frak's sake... ;)

The spirit of BeOS lives. Haiku is indeed goes on.
