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.

Well. Be Inc. didn't have to go on settlment with MS! That's partially their fault. They could have fight with MS, not only taking the money.

Anyways, I fully agree that BeOS was one of the most advanced OSs on the planet and it STILL kills MS and MacOSX in their actual forms known today!

I stick to Haiku for several years now and I will be testing it even more extensively to help to improve it.
