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.

Can someone explain why the Haiku iso has a zip on the end. I had to use Win7 to unpack and burn as neither w2k or linux will look at it.
Having said that it looks and acts very well, much as Beos and Zeta, very fast.
The internet was auto/config, the screen res/refresh works great.
