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.

Windows XP can un-compress Zip files easily. And anyone with an older Windows version probably has a zip utility installed, IZArc, WinZip, ExpressZip, etc.

"Zip" is the most standard and common compression method. Used to be anyway.

Linux doesn't have a zip utility? I'm surprised.
