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.

Be Inc certainly went through a lot. But even Haiku went through a lot of attrition. I remember all the setbacks: "oh this guy had to leave, what are they going to do now?"

8 years is a long time for a lot of people and it's amazing that many developers stayed the course from the beginning.
