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.

Congratulations to the Haiku team and to all of us out here!

I spun up the iso on parallels 4 (no boot), VirtualBox 3 (didn't have net, didn't try hard to get it ) and the linux swap partition on my main workstation (yay!). Had to manually (ifconfig) configure the interface and then it was up and running with BeZilla, trying the apps, and trying to build things.

Is there an update mechanism planned, or just to use SoftwareValet?

Great work folks!
