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.

Not only that, but the hard disk footprint is small as well. Haiku really shines at stuff like this: small, fast, running so well especially on old hardware. I always chuckle when someone says "look at how fast they made X". Yeah yeah, Haiku can still boot in 10 seconds (if it boots, that is :-).
