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.

Well. Be Inc. didn't have to go on settlment with MS! That's partially their fault. They could have fight with MS, not only taking the money.


From what I remember, there wasn't really much of Be Inc. left to fight with MS at that point. IIRC, the only person actively working for Be at that point was a lawyer whose job was basically just to make sure that any remaining creditors/shareholders got what they were owed.
