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 is the perfect operating system for a constrained environment such as a Netbook; I hope some of the big name vendors wise up and see the potential in it.

They won't. Look how they react to Linux and Linux (incl. X.org) has development support by Intel itself.
"

Never say never. Haiku's license is not as infective as Linux's, so I expect to see growing corporate support in the following years.
