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.

How come the picture shown only has two rows of lights, a true Haiku box should have 4-8 CPUs, and hyperthreading to boot to get the max out of the hardware.

BeOS and Haiku have no problems supportting that many CPUs (16) out of the box.
