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.

"BeOS just didnt get the fair chance to compete with the big guys.. SAD SAD SAD... "

The amiga had its day. You could go to a computer store and find amiga games in boxes on the shelves. Many came out *before* the pc versions because the amiga was so much better than pc's in those days. Amiga had killer apps and it certainly wasn't a deposit for old ports and copies.
Haiku didn't have that day yet. It was going to: all these apps were lined up including steinberg, nuendo, etc. poof! focus shift! all gone.
