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.

Haiku OS

Words cannot express how happy I am to see this great OS prevail. I really mean this. Haiku has a future! Because HaikuOS is open source, there will always be developers to contribute. Never ever lose hope in Haiku. Haiku will continue to be developed.

To the developers: don't *ever* be down whenever someone says something negative about you or has high expectations about this OS. Obviosuly that person doesn't have a clue.

As soon as I get a chance, I personally intend to write applications for it (in C++ of course). You never know, it may turn out to be something...Look forward to future releases.
