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.

Nice article and a great intro to Haiku.

I was once a BeOS user and this article really brought some good BeOS memories back. Since BeOS dissolved, I move on between a number of Linux distros, Solaris, Windows and OS X but still haven't found that 'feel' when I was using BeOS.

Truly, BeOS is an OS with a soul and with this article, it really portrays Haiku to be on the same exact path. A re-incarnation of BeOS, if you will.

More power to the Haiku team. It may still be too early but I'm now looking forward to R1. :-)
